  • Objective #2--Important to be skeptical and critical of materials and info you find on the web! Evaluate every site!
  • Consider both a sites trustworthiness and reliabilty
  • Here are some sites that help you assess the value, trustworthiness and reliability of any given site.
  • We have talked about finding links to resources on the web, but what to do when you have the reference and now need the actual article or book ?Misperceptions—old mythsLibrarians love the Internet and we use it too! Be sure to identify nearby libraries and librarians because we are changing not only what we do but how we do it!
  • So find a library and a librarian or two to connect with. They can be found via the Medline Plus page as well as your yellow pages!
  • In addition to need libraries to find web-based resources you will want to also search the database used by physicians, nurses, and medial librarians, PubMed is the international and free database of medicine…can be accessed from home or local library.
  • Several things to note:Has an advanced search #2 similar to Google as well as a nice white box #1You can look for a single article #3You can register to create an account#4You can do a precise search of the database using controlled vocabulary #5You can view tutorialsv#6Plus many others
