Did you know that only about 4% of online content is accessible via Google? Most content on the Internet is behind paywalls, including much of the academic content needed for college-level research. In order to access (or "catch") materials in the deep Web, like subscription databases and academic journals, you'll need to use the special access to these materials that you have as a SLU student.
The best place to start your research is SLUth Search Plus. SLUth includes articles published in scholarly journals, magazines, and newspapers as well as books, ebooks, and government information. It's very multidisciplinary in scope, so you can use it to find credible sources of information on any topic. It includes about 100 of the SLU Libraries 400 (or so) subscription databases. So, you're not searching everything the SLU Libraries have, but you're searching a lot.
