10:45 – Ten Resources I Use Everyday
From Internet tools to specialty databases and tools, you’ll learn about some of the things I use each day in my research online.
1:15 – The Hidden Web
When Google and traditional search engines don't return useful information, don't stop there. We will explore resources that are invisible to Google and hidden deep within web sites and proprietary databases. The "hidden web" lies buried within the collections for commercial web sites, libraries, archives, and museums. We will also talk about the importance of indexes that deep-link into web sites online, thus uncovering hidden gems of information that may not be found easily through a search engine query.
3:00 – Building a Digital Research Plan
Using Internet databases and catalogs we will build a research plan to answer a specific research question. We will walk through the process of planning, researching for the plan, and keeping track of what has been researched.
