This workshop is a follow-up to the Locating & Evaluating Information on the Web courses. In this session, you’ll explore how to incorporate your knowledge of Web search tools into a reference strategy. A panel of librarians from academic, public and special libraries will share with you their experiences in making the transition to the Web, and how they developed a reference strategy that includes Web-based resources. Learn their evaluative strategies and walk-through real-life searches that they performed using online and traditional resources.
