The Student's Guide to Doing Research on the Internet

£8.99

Product description

What's the world's best study aid? Yes, it's the Internet, and it's full of databases and archives that can help you with class assignments. Chances are you don't need to go any further than the closest computer to get on the Net. But how do you use the Internet? And how do you find the information you need? Relax. The Student's Guide to Doing Research on the Internet shows you all this, and more. You'll learn all about the tools for the Internet, including gopher for finding documents and other resources, FTP for retrieving files, browsers for accessing World-Wide Web pages, and WAIS for searching archives. You'll learn how to use these tools fast, without a lot of heavy reading. And you'll discover all best places on the Net to get the information you need. The Student's Guide to Doing Research on the Internet breaks it down by subject. Turn to the Sciences section to see where you can learn how to dissect a frog. Or to the History section to find what battles were fought in the American Revolution. Or to the Literature section to find where to read reviews and scholarly articles on Shakespeare's plays online. More fun than a card catalog, less back-breaking than an armload of books, it's the Internet. Use this book to learn how the Internet can help you with your classes.
