Series Review: Digital and Information Literacy
"The books are well laid out with a clean design template, sidebars and relevant illustrations. The information on advanced searching, how search engines work, and types of websites will be new to many students...a great resource when introducing research projects, or to have available in the tech lab. RECOMMENDED."
