  • 4. Next, they can navigate to their group page to view tools and resources.
  • 5. From this page, they can view discussions and follow links to library- and subject-oriented resources.
  • 6. Information literacy instructional materials can be linked from here as a refresher for students.
  • 7. NetVibes can be used to build a pathfinder for each class, subject, or topic.
  • 8. The NetVibes “Search” tab is a great place to aggregate resources with direct searching capability.
  • 9. Students are linked with not only web resources but also library resources, such as databases.
  • 10. Students can search a database, subscribe to an RSS feed for their search terms, and bookmark results using Delicious or Zotero, all in Firefox.
  • 11. This is just one example of what is possible within our Instruction, Tools, Resources framework. Each element can be adjusted to suit the needs of individual classes, students, and teachers.
