Counselors and educators face a constant struggle to keep abreast of the vast amounts of new information available, assessing this information, and continuing to gather even more information. Individual's information searching strategies often take considerable time and cause considerable frustration in getting the results wanted. While increasing importance is placed on the quality of documents found on the Internet, learning better search strategies, knowing "hidden" databases, and using reputable sites as portals can increase the success of Internet searchers on the Web. This article provides counselors and educators with suggestions for searching the Internet, including the ERIC system and ERIC database, the ERIC/CASS Virtual Library, the International Career Development Library, and the Cybercounseling and Cyberlearning Web Site.
