Slowinski, Joseph
The information rich environment of the World Wide Web provides a wealth of opportunities for international and comparative scholars of education to access a variety of electronic resources. These resources come in the form of reports, papers, policy positions, and others, many of which are available full-text if one knows where and how to locate them. This paper answers several questions related to accessing information on the Web, and provides addresses for the sites discussed. Topics include: finding and accessing information on the Web; conducting an effective search using a search engine; finding Web pages in other languages; "Alta Vista Babelfish," a free online translation service; online periodicals (full-text options, magazines, finding journals online); finding online journals related to educational issues; additional data sources (policy institutions, developmental agencies, multilateral organizations, non-governmental agencies) and how to locate organizations online; other electronic services (databases, table of contents alert service); how to subscribe to the multicultural education cluster; listservs; how to retrieve and search the Web via e-mail for those that don't have access to the Web; and the wind-up computer of the future.
