Description

Connecting details the technology available for researching and writing essays, and how students can make the best use of that technology. Written in a student-friendly style, it contains information not only about the World Wide Web, gophers and newsgroups, but also about using CDROM indexes, and Boolean key word searches for library research. It will not attempt to tell everything there is to know about computers, but will focus on areas most interesting to students in English and Humanities.show more
