This tutorial presents the substance of the web searching workshops formerly offered by the UC Berkeley Library, but now suspended due to budget reductions. We use the term "Research-quality Web Searching" to reflect our belief that there is a lot of great material on the Web - primary sources, specialized directories and databases, statistical information, educational sites on many levels, policy, opinion of all kinds, and so much more - and tools for finding it are steadily improving.

Recommended Search Strategy:   Analyze Your Topic & Search With Peripheral Vision

Search Tools:

Evaluating Web Pages: Why and How and evaluation checklist forms (PDFs)

Style Sheets for Citing Resources (Print & Electronic) (MLA, APA, Chicago/Turabian)

Glossary of Internet & Web Jargon

Handouts and PowerPoints used in our workshops
