Web Research in Academic Libraries (CLIP Note #41) provides information on teaching Web Research strategies in 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.
