A Weblog of the best information we've found this month
Database-driven websites have created phenomenal opportunites for user interaction by generating content as it is requested. However, it has also made searching the web a phenomenal challenge! The links below provide information on The Invisible Web, which is the term being used for the dynamically created content that is not reachable by traditional search methods.
On September 17 and again on November 19, CAMLS will present workshops that will teach skills in reaching the information contained on the Invisible Web.
