Access a Web Site


Four ways to find information on the Internet:

  • Enter a URL (web page address) from your professor, your textbook, published directories in the library, or other respected source into the address box at the top of the screen
  • Click on a link from another web site, email message, or other page. Ideally, start with a source that probably scrutinized the web site first (e.g., a government agency .gov, a college or university .edu, a preeminent professional organization .org)
  • Go to a Subject Directory (a hierarchical list of web sites) that someone has carefully created and link from there (e.g., FindLaw, ipl2, Rothrock Library's list of Recommended Websites
  • Go to a Search Engine (e.g, Alltheweb, AltaVista, Bing, Google, FindLaw ) and enter your subject
