Beyond the Free Web

Much online information requires a paid subscription or is in databases hidden from search engines.

  • When purchase is required, information is from the proprietary or restricted web
  • Information that must be retrieved with a database search is from the hidden, invisible, or deep web

Class assignments and sophisticated information needs that require the use of scholarly resources rarely can be satisfied by the free web alone.
