Guides to search engines and searching the Web.
http://www.amdahl.com/internet/. Tutorials, guides, FAQs (frequently asked questions lists), starting points, and more.
http://www.nlu.edu/education/searchpages/searchengines.html. A site listing many available search engines.
Internet/World_Wide_Web/Searching_the_Web/How_to_Search_the_Web/. Another list of links of resources for searching the Web. (Don't type in this URL. Instead, work down through the Yahoo categories.)
Using MS Word, write a two-page paper discussing privacy and security on the Web. Locate several examples, similar to Lycos' People Find, of personal information out there on the Web and discuss in your paper (cite the URLs in your references).
Your paper should contain several references, but they may only be information found on the Web.
Your paper should be nicely formatted, with section headings in a different font and point size than the body text and should have a separate title page.
Your paper is to be e-mailed as an attachment to
Send mail to kelliher AT DOMAIN goucher.edu

features in MS Word, e-mail them to me by Thursday morning, September 25.
If there are sufficient questions, we will spend Friday's class going over
formatting in Word.
If you are having difficulties locating research material on the Web, schedule an appointment with me early in the week.
