something worse than useless and not being able to realize how bad it is,
or of not finding what you need at all, are much higher than with library
books, though certainly they've been known to have their flaws too. The
two are not at all equal. In some fields the web is even better. In
something like Greek mythology, you're liable to find some good basic
encyclopedia stuff on the web, though the best is probably in encyclopedia
sites not easily found by Googling. But the rich detail you need to
understand the myths is probably in large part not online, and that which
is online would be too long to read comfortably that way.
