Can't I Just Use Google?

What are the differences between what you find using Google and what you find using the library databases or catalog?

To understand the differences it helps to picture an iceberg. Think of the "visible Web"--what you can find using Google or other search engines--as the part of the iceberg you can see and the "invisible Web"--what search engines can't penetrate--as the greater portion of the iceberg resting under the water and invisible to the eye.

For a brief and helpful discussion of the "invisible or deep Web" by librarians at UC Berkeley, use the link below.
