Location: N.S. Provincial Library, 3770 Kempt Rd., Halifax, NS
Date: Saturday, May 11, 2002
Time: 9:00 a.m. - Noon
Description: The World Wide Web is a powerful reference tool where the
use of images, sound, video, file transportation and text are all
integrated into a single information medium. Additionally, the
interactive nature of the WWW make it a wealthy source of information.
However, at times, it can be a confusing environment to search and
navigate. In this hands-on workshop, Debbie outlines when it is
appropriate to employ the WWW on the reference desk, as well as the
various search tools to use and sites that are freely available. Debbie
makes this a fun and lively workshop by breaking the group into "tribes"
with "reward challenges" awarded to various participants and culminating
in a final challenge between the tribe members.
This workshop is targeted to individuals who are comfortable in a web
environment would like to learn more effective searching methods when
employing web search tools.
