Why Not Just Google?

Did you know that only about 4% of online content is accessible via Google?  Most content on the Internet is behind paywalls, including much of the academic content needed for college-level research. In order to access (or "catch") materials in the deep Web, like subscription databases and academic journals, you'll need to use the special access to these materials that you have as a SLU student.
