By this point in the course, you have had the opportunity to perform both simple and advanced searches with several directories and search engines. In a recent exercise, you may have located sites and documents that could be of use to you as key sites.
Other sites that have been referred to as part of the lessons may have interested you as potential key sites.
Take a minute or two to consider what Web sites or specific documents you would like to have in your library of key sites.
- If you are new to searching on the Internet and are just beginning to uncover your key sites, write a short list of the types of sites you would like to find and save as Bookmarks or Favorites. How might you search for them? The items on your list will serve as a checklist as
you continue to develop your searching techniques and your search strategy.
- If you have experience in searching on the Web, you may have already built up a set of key sites. Consider for a moment whether any have become "stale" or unreliable and if it might be time to search again for any replacement key sites on your list.
