Editorial description(s):

From School Library Journal
Though presented in general terms (which seem to be, comfortingly, used with some consistency worldwide), this book is also a vehicle for presenting the British educator's research model. Chapter one is an excellent recap of current learning and teaching theories, while chapter two zeroes in on the range of Internet curriculum potential, from e-mail projects to complex Boolean search strategies, explaining the logic clearly and concisely. Chapter three demonstrates Web-site evaluation by technical, reliability, and educational criteria, while chapter four introduces "subject gateways," using British and Scottish examples that may or may not be as helpful to researchers outside the U.K. Chapter five reviews the well-known information-literacy models (e.g., Kuhlthau, Big 6) and introduces Herring's PLUS model (Purpose, Location, Use, Self-evaluation), and its Web use is described in detail in the next chapter. Subsequent sections describe the steps in developing a school Web site, an instructional one, and looking toward curriculum and Internet uses in the future. Because of its more European orientation, the book will probably find a narrower audience stateside.–Mary R. Hofmann, Rivera Middle School, Merced, CA
