9781555706333: Going Beyond Google: The Invisible Web in Learning and Teaching

Google isn't up to the task when it comes to serious research, and though your patrons and students have heard of the invisible, or deep Web, they have no idea how to tap into it. You need practical tools and strategies for teaching them about the Web sources and specialized databases they will never find using everyday search engines. This book will show you in simple, nontechnical terms how to integrate the invisible Web into teaching opportunities wherever they occur: in a one-on-one teaching moment at the reference desk, or in a formal course. Estimated at 500 times the size of the visible Web, the invisible Web and the search skills needed to plumb its depths should be a part of every information literacy and research skills course. With this book you get expert teaching tips and scripts for informal instruction, plus model activities and assignments for the classroom. Statistics and summaries of relevant research will help you combat myths like Searching is Easy, or Everything Important is Free. Read this book too, to find out how the best deep Web search tools, including Complete Planet, Closer Look, and the Librarian's Internet Index, are evolving and what it all means for your library's future electronic collection development plans.
