Searching for Information: Tutorial for Info Power (TIP)

In the introductory part of this program, the authors differentiate the open Web and common Web search engines from online resources available to library users. A comparison of scholarly and popular journals follows, and the program concludes with a section on keyword and subject searching. An opportunity for interaction is given about halfway through. Students are asked to look at two research topics, type in relevant keywords into free-text forms, and then compare their choices with lists created by the authors. Back and next buttons appear on each page, enabling review and forward movement.   This digital learning object has been chosen by the CSU ICT/Information Literacy Learning Objects Initiative due to its quality and minimal conformity to the committee’s criteria.
