20 Missouri University Library Research Guide “ Despite its wonderful features, Google must not be used exclusively—Google freely admits the 50% of its searches come back with no appropriate results. Not everything is available on the surface web. This has to do with money and/or copyright. If you need scholarly information from reputable sources, you should use the high-quality electronic and print resources in the library.” Bhullar, Goodie, et al. Library Research. Columbia, MO: University of Missouri Columbia, 2005.
