Simpson, Carol; McElmeel, Sharron L.
This book is designed as an introduction to the Internet and World Wide Web for teachers and school library media specialists. The book helps educators learn about the Internet and assists them in taking the lead in technology in their school. Librarians have a vested interest in learning about the Internet and its wealth of resources. As a worldwide network of electronic information, the Internet helps librarians provide resources that could not possibly be provided at the local level. As with any new information resource, librarians, teachers, and students need training and experience to become "power users." The book contains the following chapters: (1) What is the Internet? (2) Searching the Web; (3) Introducing the Internet to Students; (4) Introducing the Internet to Faculty and Staff; (5) Uses of the Internet in School Libraries; (6) Uses of the Internet in Specific Content Areas; (7) Getting Online; and (8) Internet Access Points. Appendices include an introduction to e-mail, file transfer protocol (FTP), World Wide Web (WWW), and transparency masters for providing training sessions. A glossary, URL (uniform resource locator) and e-mail address index, and subject index are provided. (Contains 25 references.) (Author/SWC)
