    Hi Everyone -

    I just wanted to send an e-mail to invite you and your staffs to the Department of the Interior Library on Thursday, January 23rd from 2:00 to 3:00 pm ET for a free training session entitled "Searching Through the Invisible Web: Finding Hidden Resources on the Internet," part of our series of free training sessions at the DOI Library.

    It has been said that online searching in today's Internet environment is like dragging a net across the surface of the ocean. While a significant amount of information may be caught in the net, there is also a wealth of information that is missed because it is "below the surface". A great deal of valuable research and information is buried far down on dynamically generated sites, where standard search engines cannot find it. Traditional search engines cannot see or retrieve content in the "Invisible" or "Deep" Web – those pages do not exist until they are created dynamically as the result of a specific search. The Invisible Web is several orders of magnitude larger than the surface Web. This class will examine the type of information available on the mysterious "Invisible Web," how to access it, and why it is important. Learn why some information is inaccessible to web search engines and what might be overlooked in researching the Internet. Search techniques and recommended sources will also be covered. This program will be conducted by Jennifer Klang, Head of Reference Services.

    All that are interested are invited. Please note that the DOI Library is located in Room 1151 of the Stewart Lee Udall Department of the Interior Building, just off the C Street entrance lobby. The Stewart Lee Udall Department of the Interior Building is located at 1849 C Street, NW in Washington, DC.
