Evaluating your sources: Since there is no overall editor on the internet, if you select a source using a general search engine like google or yahoo, it is up to you to evaluate the quality of the information you gather, using the basic criterion listed on guides like the START checklist (available in the library).  
General Google searches:  For graphics select IMAGES and search / To limit searches:  TOPIC +chemistry  / Government sites only: TOPIC

Documenting Sources:
Any time you use someone else's words or ideas, you must give credit to that source.  Assume that websites, like books or journal articles are copyright protected, so you may use no more than one image or 10% of the information from one site.
