alta vista news
"I've mentioned on several occasions that news search from AltaVista continues to develop into a favorite. Have you noticed that the AV News now offers an option to limit by date or date range? Although, I don't recommend limiting by date for general web searching it can be very useful with news since every article has a specific publication date associated with it. One of the date limits at AV is "anytime". Another limit allows you to search by using a range of dates. What does Anytime mean? While many news engines contain only about 2-4 weeks of news AltaVista's archive goes back well beyond 30 days. This doesn't mean it's time start canceling your fee-based services. If older content is available, it's because the various news organizations are keeping the links active. AV checks the urls regularly to see if links are still "hot". In a time of declining budgets, we might as well maximize what free and low cost content is still available. " Gary Price, Resource Shelf

At the Online Library . . .
by George Lorenzo
In online higher education, as in traditional higher education, the library is the nexus between teaching and learning, providing a host of vital services to its patrons.
The prototypical 21st century higher education library is a complex business. Technology is driving enormous change in the way students learn and faculty teach. Libraries must keep up with the inflow of new technologically savvy students who insist on doing all their research online over a quick Internet connection with easy-to-navigate interfaces.

The Future of Online Search
The Future of Online Search Report on a survey that classifies search engine users into five groups: discoverers, viewers, writers, readers and technodoers. The survey reports a surprisingly low success rate overall: only 25 percent of searches yield a usable result. But the most telling comment is this: "People clearly do not want to search - people simply do not wake up in the morning looking forward to searching on Google. People want to get other things done where search is an activity that is required to get there. If people had other more convenient ways of getting there, they would use those methods." For those of you who think that the future of online learning will look like a search portal, read this story, and think again. By Microdoc, Kairosnews, January 29, 2003 courtesay of S. Downes
