Databases vs. the Web

Just because something is available online, that doesn’t mean it is a website.  Online subscription databases like those from EBSCO are available because the library has paid to have online access to their materials, which is often more convenient for students and researchers.  The open web, however, is exactly the opposite. The information is freely available, but anyone can create and host a site without any regulation.  Be cautious when using the open web.
