The World Wide Web can be an excellent place to conduct research, providing access to government, company, association, and organization information.

Cons:

The World Wide Web contains innumerable sources that are largely unvetted, unreliable, and do not meet academic standards. It is your responsibility to evaluate sources with a critical eye.
