    • Internet: Myths and Reality
    • The Web and the Law
      • No one has to tell the truth
      • Only Internet laws -- pornography & copyright
      • Hard to enforce – use is international
      • WWW is wonderful 
      • for communications
      • for entertainment
      • for business
    • The Web and Research
      • 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.
      • Choose reputable pages and current pages --only use .gov or .edu (these we EXPECT to be the truth)
    • What’s the difference ??? WWW vs. Internet
      • Internet -- system of connecting computers around the world
      • WWW -- subset of computers using HTML software or web software sharing info from hard drives or servers
      • Search engines search subset of WWW computers only
    • 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
    • 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
    • NOT the be all -- end all Info HAS to be used quickly , easily , get primary source documents
    • Grows by 25 pages per second. Fluid, anonymous, constantly changing. Information Superhighway
    • Suggestions for Research
      • 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
