Article- Internet searching for OT students/staff

Blimey it's a long time no blog for me! After having many weeks in the other world of deepest darkest Lancashire I'm back! I came across an interesting article for OT staff and students today inOTPractice (Jan 22, 2007), pg 16-19, "Surfing or Searching the Internet?" by Mary S. Binderman and Mindy A. Hecker. I t has many tips for searching and has some simple explanations of what different search engines do and tips on searching. It also goes into copyright issues, evaluating sources and has a list of sources for open-Access fulltext articles that would be useful for OT staff/students to know about if they didn't already know. The call no. for OTPractice is Per615.8515 OT
