Hi Everyone -

I just wanted to send an e-mail to invite you and your staffs to the
Department of the Interior Library on Thursday, November 17th from 2:00 pm
to 4:00 pm for a training session entitled "Searching the Invisible Web:
Finding Hidden Resources on the Internet," part of our series of free
training sessions at the DOI Library.

It has been said that searching on the Internet today can be compared to
dragging a net across the surface of the ocean; a great deal may be caught
in the net, but there is a wealth of information that is below the surface
and therefore missed. Most of the Web's information is buried far down on
dynamically generated sites, and standard search engines do not find it.
Traditional search engines cannot "see" or retrieve content in the
“Invisible” or “Deep” Web – those pages do not exist until they are created
dynamically as the result of a specific search. The Invisible Web is
several orders of magnitude larger than the surface Web. This class will
examine the type of information available on the mysterious "Invisible
Web," how to access it, and why it is important. Learn why some information
is inaccessible to web search engines and what might be overlooked in
researching the Internet. Search techniques and recommended sources will
also be covered. This program will be conducted by Reference Librarian
Jennifer Klang.

All that are interested are invited.  The DOI Library is located in the
Main Interior Building, located at 1849 C Street, NW, Room 1151 in
Washington.  Space is limited so please contact the Library by phone at
(202) 208-5815 or by e-mail at [log in to unmask] to let us know you will be
coming.

For more information about future DOI Library Training Sessions, we
encourage you to visit our Training Sessions website at

We hope to see you on November 17th!
