There is plenty of information about geography online, but separating the wheat from the chaff can be time-consuming and difficult. This helpful online tutorial written by librarians John Blunden-Ellis and Pete Maggs leads users through this process, and along the way users will also learn about evaluating the contents of sites. The entire tutorial should take users about an hour to complete and they can start with the "Tour" section. Here they will take a guided tour through geography sites that feature maps, bibliographic databases of note, and learning and teaching resources. Moving on, the "Discover" section lets users learn about different Internet search tools and offers a set of helpful tips on search strategies. Finally, the site also includes a glossary of terms and a place where users can offer feedback on the tutorial.
