Additional Resources

Open Web vs Hidden Web

Anyone can access resources on Google or other search engines online, but the information you find there is only the tip of the iceberg. The TCU Library pays subscription fees for access to databases, and the full-text articles you can often find there.

Because of these fees, the information in these databases are a part of the hidden web. Because you are a TCU student, you have access to the information in these databases through the TCU Library.
