Quantity over Quality

The Web can be a good research source for:

  • sampling public opinion of people on the Internet
  • gathering a wide range of ideas
  • locating information on topics not found in mainstream publications
  • learning more about companies and organizations
  • reading information from the government
  • finding quick facts
  • catching up with current news

The key idea when using the Web is that you get QUANTITY over QUALITY. The Web is a good tool for finding information, but it is usually not the best place to begin academic research.
