The fifth edition of “Searching and Researching on the Internet and the World Wide Web,” co-authored by Ernest Ackermann, professor of computer science, and Karen Hartman, a former UMW staff member, has been published recently. The first edition of “Searching and Researching” was published in 1997, when Hartman was a reference librarian in the Simpson Library. She currently holds a position in the U.S. State Department. This edition extends the focus on formulating search strategies, understanding how to form search expressions, evaluating information, and citing resources to the social and other technologies often associated with the term Web 2.0.
