Abstract

Every librarian knows undergraduate students rarely evaluate the information they find in a print index, much less what comes from a computer screen. This knowledge is compounded by the undergraduate’s belief that anything coming from the Internet is the gospel truth. Is the Internet being integrated into library instruction, taught as another research tool, or taught as something special? Are students being taught to evaluate Internet resources? In this annotated bibliography, Hahn examines journal articles, book chapters, and Web sites that discuss the evaluation of information found through the Internet.
