Websites: Google vs Library

Google wins easily for this kind of source.

If you've looked around this guide, you probably recognize that Google is committed to helping you search for what is publicly available on the web. If there is a cost for access, you are expected to pay.

The HCC Libraries try to provide videos and other materials that are exactly what you need for your HCC classes, even if there is a cost involved. While you're a student at HCC, these materials are provided to you free of charge.
