Locating Reliable Academic Sources

Using Google Search to your Advantage

You can use Google tricks to search websites. Add to your search and it will limit to that domain to government websites. In addition, you can search specific websites this way as well. For example, "Emma Goldman Clinic" will search only the Iowa Government websites for your terms.

You can also limit by date by opening the Tools link and choosing a time period.
