Understand how to effectively search for information on the Internet and how to properly cite Internet resources.

Search for information: Use a Search Engine (linked to database) e.g. 'google.com'. Once the Search Engine page has opened, type the keywords in to search box, click the search icon and a list of possile matching websites or 'Hits' will appear as a list on screen .Other Search Engine tools allow a user to search for music files, images, maps etc. To make your search more effective there are a number of different strategies that you can use. For example, you can use 'Boolean Operators' i.e 'And', 'Or' or 'Not' in between keywords, you can use synonyms or variant words.

Citing Internet resources: To avoid plagiarizing, proper citation procedures should be used for all Internet content used in a paper, book, or on a Web site.
