Hey. I was curious do veins and capillaries also have elastic connective tissue like arteries?

Think about it. What are the functions of the arteries? they need those strong muscular tissues so they can efficiently get the blood pumping all over the body and to all extremities, right?
What are the function of capillaries?
i dont recommend websites.... i would go with a biology book, its totally basic bio

Why don't recommend websites? Sometimes they provide free handouts or lecture notes of some professors from any universities. It's quite good ;)

Yeah, some universities has free access. Some professors even have their own site, where we can do interactive with them. As a teacher/researcher, those websites are very helpful as they allow me to use their resources, of course with copyright permission, and they reply my e-mail when I need to discuss something ;)

For online journals, if you have to pay to get full text, there is a trick: find out the corresponding author of that journal, write a mail to ask free journal. If you are lucky, they could be your "virtual" supervisor ;) That's my experience :D
