Navigating the Internet

by Richard Smith, Mark Gibbs

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Smith, known for his Internet training over the Internet itself that pulls in thousands of students from 50 countries, and Gibbs, a networking expert, pool their talents with this simply titled work. Fourteen chapters and five appendixes cover everything from a history of the network to accessing OCLC, ERIC, and DIALOG. Half the book is devoted to its appendixes, which include tests of your Internet skills, Internet commands and a glossary of terms, E-mail, and a guide to discussion lists. Although some readers might wonder why 170 pages are devoted to the mercurial world of discussion lists, the authors nevertheless organize their Internet facts well, making this a valuable encyclopedia.Best choice
Introduces the Internet by explaining what the network is, how it is accessed, and how it can be used. Offers technical and practical tips, detailed examples, and a listing of Internet resources. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
