The Internet is a very useful source of much of the secondary and some of the primary information which you might well need in your research. However, you need to become skilled in using it so that you get to the range of appropriate sources, rather than relying on Google (a search engine which can lead you to some of the sources you need, but not all) or Wikipedia (an online encyclopaedia of sorts which is written by anyone and everyone and so is sometimes brilliant and sometimes untrustworthy as a source) alone, and you do need to learn how to use the Internet wisely, in a properly selective, properly referenced fashion just like any other information source.
