Product Description

From School Library Journal

Gr 6 Up-This revised introduction (Millbrook, 1996) to using the Internet for school projects begins with descriptions of discussion groups, mailing lists, e-mail, and the World Wide Web. It covers cybersafety, how to search for information, tips for doing research papers and evaluating the information found. It describes collaborative projects that involve students from around the world and explains how readers may publish on the Internet. The book is chock-full of Web sites for readers to access. Clips of Internet pages provide visual examples for the textual information. Sidebar information in white print against black backgrounds is striking. An appendix of search engines adds value to the text.

From Booklist

Gr. 6^-12. Although the jacket shouts textbook, and the format is equally dull, there is some useful information here, especially if a library is still using the browser Veronica (which is being superseded in some places by search engines such as Infoseek and Alta Vista). Because Marshall is directing her text to students using school facilities, she is able to steer clear of talk about hardware and service providers. E-mail, FTP, and newgroups are clearly explained, but the focus is on-line searching, which Marshall explains using a step-by-step approach. She also supplies some basic information about the World Wide Web and presents an unusual chapter highlighting collaborative projects using Web access. The index is not detailed, but the glossary is quite extensive. Stephanie Zvirin --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
