  • locating government publications (reports, statistics, legislation)
  • finding current, contextual information such as newspaper articles, interviews, reports, and papers



  • extremely current



  • often inaccurate, biased, and incomplete
  • may also be outdated
  • harder to control searches to return relevant results
