Digital and Information Literacy: Set 1
Digital and information literacy is needed to get by, to be able to engage in the most basic transactions and activities of normal daily life. Readers will learn the ins-and-outs of conducting high-caliber computer-based research, while avoiding information sources that are unreliable, erroneous, or overly partisan or agenda-driven. In addition, these books will steep readers in proper digital ethics, explaining how to avoid Internet plagiarism, sloppy or misleading citation of sources, use or reproduction of materials without permission, and checking of a source's information against that of other reputable sources.
* Reviews *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."

Book Review: Creating Multimedia Presentations
"I loved the fact that it dealt with all aspects of a presentation--not just the electronic aspects. It talked about presentation, research, and audience. This is a good tool for our students as they move more and more into a world where presentation skills are necessary. This book also dealt with copyright issues which are often neglected."
