Abstract:

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, non-technical 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.
