Description
"The first comprehensive guide to conducting academic research on the Internet." The book assumes a certain familiarity with standard research procedures (e.g. library and notetaking skills) and a general computer literacy, but assumes little experience with the Internet. All the major researchable modes of the Internet and their respective search engines are covered, from the early technologies FTP, WAIS, and gopher, which still have usefulness today, to the current favorites, Usenet and the World Wide Web. Also included are sections on the listservs and e-mail. All discussion of finding and evaluating Internet-based information occurs within the context of typical student research, showing how the Internet fits into finding a topic, shaping and narrowing the focus, drafting and revising the paper, and integrating and documenting the source material. Discussions are machine and interface independent, applying to Windows, Macintosh, and text-based computers." For anyone interested in increasing their internet research skills.
