Internet Resources

Which Internet resources are suitable?

Generally governments, non-profit organisations and other universities are able to provide reliable and accurate information for academic research.

Google Advanced Search

Web search engines are important tools for finding Government reports as well as resources from industry and professional organisations.

Advanced Search functionality available in search engines saves time and increases relevancy of results. Try using the Advanced Search options in Google to:

  • Search by file type - i.e. PDF (documents without web page content)
  • Search by domain - i.e. .gov.au (useful for locating government reports)
  • Search by date
