Internet Technology Resources.
Roy, Loriene, Comp.
Part of a larger report on the Four Directions Project, an American Indian technology innovation project, this section includes six "pathfinders" to locating information on Internet resources. The pathfinders were designed by students in the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Texas at Austin in response to specific requests by educators in reservation schools. The pathfinders are bibliographic instructional aids that outline methods to locate information on topics of interest to a particular client. Each pathfinder includes an introduction that describes the nature of the topic, scope of the pathfinder, assessment of client needs, and steps taken in identifying and evaluating relevant resources; an annotated bibliography of 15-25 resources, including print reference works, monographs, indexes, journal titles, electronic resources, and organizations; and the pathfinder proper, a guide to locating resources on the topic. The pathfinders are: (1) "Internet Resources: A Pathfinder for Beginners" (Ayne Steinkuehler); (2) "How To Select a Search Engine: A Pathfinder" (Orly Zilkha); (3) "Evaluating Internet Resources: Tips for High School Students" (Cheryl Goldenstein); (4) "How To Evaluate Elements of a Web Page: A Pathfinder" (Ann Minner); (5) "Native American Language Resources on the Internet: A Pathfinder" (Daisy Benson); and (6) "A Pathfinder for Introductory HTML Resources" (Lee Bell).
