      • And Not/Not – Excludes terms
      • Near/Followed by – Based on proximity of words to one another
  • 9. Boolean “ or” links two terms and expands a search “ and” links two terms and narrows search “ not” narrows a search by excluding a 2 nd term
  • 10. General Guidelines
    • The internet is not like a library
      • No established set of rules
      • Not specialists – like trained librarians
      • No organization
    • Most useful as supplementary tool
    • No guarantees that source is reliable or unbiased – anyone can publish
    • Can be a black hole – sources disappear
    • Be patient – the web is often slow
    • Useful information is not always free!
  • 11. Ask yourself these questions:
    • What server did you find the information on?
    • Who wrote or put up the information?
    • What are the credentials of the author or web manager?
    • Could there be a hidden agenda behind this information source?
    • The web is not an encyclopedia!
  • 12. Information Literacy
    • You have the ability to:
    • Know when you need information
    • Know how to find information
    • Know how to evaluate information
    • Know how to process information
    • Know how to use information to make appropriate decisions in your life
