Internet Detective site launched

Free online tutorial for Information Literacy,
launched June 13, 2006

From the 'Brief' page:
"Welcome to Internet Detective - a free online tutorial that will help you develop Internet research skills for your university and college work. The tutorial looks at the critical thinking required when using the Internet for research and offers practical advice on evaluating the quality of web sites."

From the press release:
“Students are increasingly turning to the Internet to find information for their coursework or assignments, but they can be naïve in the sources they choose. There is concern among lecturers and librarians that students often degrade their work by referencing inappropriate information sources and by failing to use the key scholarly materials that they should be using.” (Emma Place, University of Bristol, co- author of Internet Detective).
