Using Google

Google Web Search

Most research starts with Google, we encourage it as a matter of fact. Using Google will help you discover a topic or even better develop a topic idea you have in mind.

There is a small problem, however. How can you ensure Google is giving you reliable sources?

Here's a trick: When looking for sources you can trust, try to stick to .edu, .org, or .gov websites. To do this, enter your search terms in the search box and then add "" or "" or "". For example, if you're researching education issues in Texas, you could search "corpus christi AND homeless programs"

To specifically search for Texas Governement Agencies, search using "". An example would be: "food insecurity".
