Internet Searcher's Handbook

Internet Searcher's Handbook is the latest weblog I developed. Aim of this blog is to introduce the trends and techniques of online environment particularly to the Sri Lankan academic and library community with the aim of equipping them with necessary knowledge and skills to be successful in the online information environment. Special features of this blog are:
  • Search Tip of the Month (to introduce an effective search tip)
  • Website of the Month (to introduce a useful local website)
  • Specific Online Resources (to introduce useful Online resources)

The idea of developing this blog came to my mind during a workshop conducted by me for the academic staff members of the University on 09th July, on "An Introduction to Online Information Resources & Effective Online Searching Techniques ". I wanted to keep them regularly updated by sharing what I find. URL: http://ishandbook.blogspot.com/
