* 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: Cited! Identifying Credible Information
"A title that should be required reading in every school in the land. This brief title makes it clear that much of the information on the Internet is someone's opinion that can't be tested or proved. It shows young people how to do accurate and trustworthy research and avoid being suckered by "phony facts". ...go get this book for your kids."
