Get Caught In The Web
Get Caught In The Web is an 18 minute video which humorously
dramatizes the library research experience of a student who is trying
to complete a research assignment by only using the Internet. A savvy
advisor appears and helps the student discover the wealth of resources
available in the library and then leads the student through the strategies
involved in the research process. Interested in viewing the video? Ask

for a little help".
