The seminar will address website selection and database search techniques. The twenty-first century is often referred to as the information age. The public needs and demands quality information, but often lacks the skills to access reliable and authoritative sources. Online research can be overwhelming and frustrating. The seminar will focus on the tools needed for homeschool families, high school students, students entering college, and people needing reliable information from credible sources.
