The second session of the workshop will focus on the “Invisible Web,” invisible to most search engines and vast in size and quality.  Learn why search engines miss these sites and some strategies for unearthing the best of them. 


Presenters will offer a sampling of sites, often government sites and finish the workshop with tips for teaching these Internet searching skills to patrons.
