9780471498421: Biosciences on the Internet: A Student's Guide

Most biological science departments run general skills courses for their first years, which include some combination of a range of topics from lab skills, writing and presentation to basic maths, statistics and IT. The IT section of these courses tend to include some internet coverage but the trend towards learning how to find, access, manage and correctly cite online resources is rapidly becoming a required necessity for every student throughout their undergraduate career.

At present, there are no internet guides that specifically target this audience, despite the increasing importance placed on the use of online resources and the difficulties students encounter trying to make effective use of the information that is available. There are a lot of resources on the internet and students, especially first years, can feel swamped. As well as needing a guide, students need support to help them identify good, reliable information on the net. They also need guidance in administering the organisation of their searches and the materials that they discover on the internet. This simple guide will help bioscience students to access the information they need on the internet, and to make the most efficient and effective use of their time online.

From the Back Cover:

The internet is becoming increasingly important as a reference tool, with many students using it as their first choice of resource material. However, as the scope of the internet grows, so does the need for a concise, accessible guide to help students access, manage and cirrectly cite online resource material. Biosciences on the Internet: A Student's Guide is aimed specifically at students in the biological sciences, providing them with practical information and support to help identify good, reliable information, and guidance in administering the organisation of their searches.

This simple guide will help bioscience students to access the information they need on the internet and help to make the most efficient and effective use of their time online. Starting with an overview of the origins and history of the internet, subsequent chapters look at accessing relevant websites, how to record and organise material, how to recognise copyright and pagiarism issues and how to evaluate and navigate round websites. Information is also given on how to construct personal websites.

This book will be invaluable to all undergraduate students within the biological sciences who are looking for a practical guide to using the internet in support of their course assignments.

Biosciences on the Internet: A Student's Guide:
* is a friendly, comprehensive guide providing bioscience undergraduates with practical advice on sourcing, retrieving and utilising information on the internet
* includes numerous images and illustration to help students grasp key concepts and navigate successfully through the text
* offers a supplementary website, including relevant links
