Description

It's back . . . The Internet Library. Here are five new books on the cutting edge; what kids want to know about the Internet. This series of nonfiction books serves as an introduction to important issues that young people should be familiar with. A computer screen character named Web takes readers on a step-by-step journey to carefully explain new concepts and provide readers with opportunities to practice newly acquired skills. Each book contains Internet addresses throughout the text that relate to the topics being discussed, a further reading list, a glossary, and an index. Directions are generic for many different types of computers and software.Authors Gerry, Janet, and Allison Souter demonstrate how to make the Internet work for you when doing research. They explore the various search engines that are available, bulletin boards, listservs, and chat rooms. They help the reader figure out which methods and options will work best for them and thoroughly describe the uses and possible dangers of each suggestion.show more
