The internet can be a great place to start your research, with so much information surely you can’t go wrong? Many of us will admit to using Wikipedia (perhaps against the better judgement of our lecturers) as well as simply ‘googling’ our questions.
The problem with this is the reliability of information, but then how do you know what is reliable and what isn’t? And if you need a quick piece of information that is key to you completing your essay, how do you know it is right?
It’s a bit old now, but the Internet for Economics guides you through different methods of searching the internet and analysing the reliability of your results.
