|This module is intended as a collection of information which extends and supports the information contained in the other three modules. It includes a bibliography and will have a collection of WWW links which do not fit easily into the other modules. The idea is that this section will be added to as and when resources are discovered.|
|This (hopefully expanding) bibliography will
provide details of relevant literature in information skills and some background material,
as well as details of texts referred to in this course.

|To be a collection of sites with material on
information skills, plus sites of significance to engineering researchers.
This is for completists only - it describes a collection of 125 criteria for web-site evaluation, and gives a categorised and ranked list of these criteria. A simpler set of criteria will be added to the WWW unit in Module 2.
The database tables
|Glasgow and Strathclyde libraries both have tables on their WWW sites which give details of all the databases currently held at each location, including password arrangements, service provider, access details, and license arrangements:|
