Finding Web Images

Finding information on the Web is easy.  Find the right information can take more time.  A Google search on the term "music history" for example will give you some useful sites, but few that may be of use to your academic needs.  If you are getting to many results that are not what you need, try doing an advanced search limiting to .edu or .org sites.

Google Search limited to Education (.edu) or Non-Profit (.org) sites
