The purpose of this laboratory exercise is to introduce the student to Earth Science resources on the World Wide Web (WWW) and in particular provide access to material which can be useful throughout a typical Mineralogy course. One way to use this lab would be during the first week of classes (typically immediately after Labor Day at Wisconsin) prior to having covered enough material in lecture to have a "real" lab. If you don't have access to a computer lab so that all the students in a lab section can work on this at once (singly or in pairs) or if you have some other favorite first lab, one could introduce this exercise and plan to have the students do much of this on their own.
