    Jo Tomlin says "This is a really cool web site where you can look at certain books and magazines for free. Instead of waiting for the book in the library, or buying the book, you type in the book title at bibliomania.com and it searches the hundreds of books they have on their site. They have a wide variety from Dickens to Marx. If they have not got a book you are looking for, they recommend other books that may be of use. I got Freud's Interpretation of Dreams, although it took ages to download. They did not have the other book I needed."

1Up Info - Encyclopedia & Reference Resource
http://www.1upinfo.com/
Recommended by Shaan Bahri 19.6.2003. Covers a wide range of subjects and you may find it useful. It is a commercial site where the advertising sometimes overpowers the information, but the advertising appears more discrete than when I first visited.

Academic searching: See Literature search. Try Google scholar for academic articles. For general searches, Google or another Search Engine. Open Directory lets you search by classification. Copac, or another library catalogue, can be used with keyword searches to find relevant books. See Online books for free books. Internet Collegiate Reference Collection for "the best free reference material on the web". Subject Gateways catalogue, classify and describe material about their subject. Intute includes social science. The web archive lets you read material that has been removed (if you have the web address) and the internet detective will help you assess the academic value of what you find on the web. ABC Referencing will help you reference what you find on the internet.

Search engines

There are enormous internet databases that you can use through your web browser.

Search Engine Watch

The Ultimate Student's Guide to Search Engines by Alex Miller

http://www.searchengines.com/ http://www.all.info

Portal or directory sites categorise the web into areas (directories). Most have search box where you type a word or phrase and search, but you also have a list ot major areas in which the links are classified. You can follow the links downwards to a topic that matches what you want. The example given here is the:

Open Directory Project
http://dmoz.org:

You can use the table above to start browsing, or search directly by typing in a word below and clicking on the button:

Yahoo, Lycos, and AltaVista also have directory structures and search boxes. As do most Subject Gateways

Yahoo
http://www.yahoo.com

Lycos
http://www.lycos.co.uk
This link starts as a UK search, but allows you to search the whole web as well. I used to use this a lot for searches - But it seems rusty now. BBCi is UK based (but does not give you choice). The Google site (which BBCi is based on) does not filter out material as BBCi does. It also has newsgroup archives. If you want pictures, try Google images. If you want maps, try one of these.

AltaVista
http://www.altavista.com/
This site can translate from many languages (not Welsh, unfortunately). So, for example, you can search "Olympe de Gouges" in French and translate the sites into English. Olympe become "it" instead of "she".

Search Engines give you a box in which you type instructions that bring a list of relevant files to your screen.

20search.com - search engine list
http://www.20search.com
This gives you 20 popular search engines, with search boxes, all on one page. You fill in the box for one and click search for its results. Search results open in a new page. After the first search, search terms should be automatically filled into every search box, so you can search whichever ones you choose without re-typing.

Ask Jeeves
www.askjeeves.co.uk
Uses a plain English search. When you type in something like "How can I learn easy maths" it produces a list of questions that it can answer. You choose the ones you want.

"I typed in "where can I find a cheap holiday?" and it came up with a lot of useful information." (Cinderella Saleem)

The other search engines want you to type keywords into the box.

Google
http://www.google.com/
Largest collection of web pages of any crawler-based search engine.
"I usually find using the web hard, but Goggle is very easy to understand. I searched for many topics from academic to non academic material. The academic material I found was very interesting." (Purvika Patel)

Scientific Method

Henri Poincare, Bertrand Russell and Karl Popper
Summaries by Joan Hughes

A pilgrimage to Popper, by Adam Gopnik (The New Yorker)
"In 1945, Russell could write, as an unexceptionable fact, that science dealt with the realm of the definite, philosophy with the unprovable. A half century later, no philosopher (including Russell) would have written that. Everyone accepts that science centers on the hypothetical and the conjectural, the imaginative leap and the subsequent search for a significant test, and the questions turn on just what tests, and just what guesses, count. Popper was almost single-handedly responsible for this revolution..."

Introduction to Scientific Method
http://gwis2.circ.gwu.edu/~atkins/newwebpages/general/Thoughts /1_Intro.html (archive)

Open Directory listing for Scientific Method
http://dmoz.org/Science/Methods_and_Techniques/Scientific_Meth od/

Scientific American: Smart People Believe Weird Things
Rarely does anyone weigh facts before deciding what to believe, By Michael Shermer "science is not a database of unconnected factoids but a set of methods designed to describe and interpret phenomena, past or present, aimed at building a testable body of knowledge open to rejection or confirmation."
[The definition emphasises method without showing how those methods would exclude the weird beliefs]

The creative poet-scientist approach http://hem.passagen.se/thebee/SCIENCE/Science.htm
"What is Science? Some viewpoints from the perspective of the theory of science" by Sune Nordwall. 1980-2000. An anthroposophical account based on the theories of the German poet-scientist J.W. Goethe, as interpreted by Rudolph Steiner.

Ian Rowley (Centre for Educational Guidance and Student Support) points out that many UK Universities reserve their study skills advice for their own students. I used his list of UK sites that are public and found out how right he is. Even the ones he identified were nearly all taken of the public web in the last two years. However, the following sites should all be available. My thanks to Douglas Reid of Hull University for providing some links.
