  3. 3. Welcome to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit. Where did you get your research information in High School?
  4. 4. Internet Myths • Everything worth finding is on the Web. • Google searches the whole Web. • The best information is found in the first 10 results. • Searching is easy. • Everything is free. • Everything is truthful, authoritative, accurate. Devine, Jane and Francine Egger-Sider. Going Beyond Google: The Invisible Web in Learning and Teaching New York: Neal-Schuman 2009. Print.
  5. 5. http://www.juanico.co.il/Main%20frame%20-%20English/Issues/invisible%20web.gif Did you know…? Search engines crawl only 16-20% of the Internet
  6. 6. “Why should you use the library?” The Invisible Web
  7. 7. What is the Invisible Web? • There's a huge amount of information not found by the big search engines. It is part of the Deep, Dark, Hidden or Invisible Web. • Specialized, restricted, proprietary information is in the Invisible Web. • The library has access to many databases with this kind of information.
  8. 8. So…. Why should you use the library? • Not everything is on the internet. In the library you can browse and read books, articles, encyclopedias, and other print materials that are not free online. • Not everything is free. The library has access to many fee-based databases with thousands of articles, and other data. • Librarians (and your professors) spend time selecting quality materials. We collect scholarly and authoritative materials especially for your classes. • Personal assistance from North Georgia librarians, library staff and Technology Help Desk.
  9. 9. Sure, Google is convenient. But you want the best information… Not just what’s convenient. Use the Library!
