Diversity in Women's Lives: Gender, Race, Class & Sexuality


Selected Bibliographies compiled for the University of South Carolina
Eleventh Annual Women's Studies Conference, February 26-27, 1998

The World Wide Web (WWW) or Web or Internet or Net or any number of other names provides another medium with which we can get information. The same kinds of criteria that we use to define quality information should be used when looking at information from the Web. There's good information, bad information, and all kinds of in between. Don't let your judgement be swayed, just because it's on the Web. If you aren't familiar with using the Web, Thomas Cooper Library offers classes in beginning searching. The schedule is available on the USC Training page - University Libraries or contact Marilee Birchfield, Thomas Cooper Library: phone 777-4267, email marilee@sc.edu
