    • Not the greatest for Educational research.
    • Only 25% research worthy -- most is pay-for-view on the Invisible Web---like EBSCO and Worldbook and Gale. (Traveler databases)
    • Pay-for-view sites never show up in search results list from search engine.

  • 6. To Use Internet for Research
    • Reputable search engines like Google (not Yahoo or Ask Jeeves -- topic searches not keyword-- good for searching for hotels, products, etc.)
    • NEVER use the search button on browser
    • Use 3 to 4 words with +sign
    • Use Boolean logic to limit search
    • Use quotes around compound nouns and phrases
    • Only first 10 hits on results list; Go back, refine your search terms if not useful
    • Don’t search from location bar
  • 7. How Search Engines Work
    • Gobots, robots or spiders
      • Memorize www computer directories
      • List on search engine where search terms found
      • Broken links = search engine not updated regularly
  • 8. NOT the be all -- end all Info HAS to be used quickly , easily , get primary source documents

    • Permit fewer Internet citations on research papers
    • Require use of primary sources
    • Require use of Traveler and district provided databases “Invisible Web”
    • Educate faculty and students on educational and ethical use of computer resources
