Web Research in Academic Libraries (CLIP Note #41) provides information on teaching Web Research strategies in information literacy instruction. In the more complex electronic information environment, undergraduates gravitate to the Web for their information needs. To what extent and in what ways have academic libraries incorporated Web search strategies into their information literacy instruction? This CLIP Note gathers descriptions of current practice from college libraries of all sizes.

This book is suitable for community college, college, and university libraries as well as a pedagogical tool for library and information schools.
