"Creative Commons is a non-profit that helps sharing and reuse of creativity and knowledge via free legal and technological tools . These tools are not alternatives to copyright laws, rather they work alongside them.

To help you better teach your students about Creative Commons and how it works, here is a handy graphic that visually captures the main important things students need to know about Creative commons. Enjoy"

Five Search Engines You Can Use to Search the Deep Web

Five Search Engines You Can Use to Search the Deep Web | Librarianship | Scoop.it

Unlike pages on the visible Web (that is, the Web that you can access from search engines and directories), information in the Deep Web is just not visible to the software spiders and crawlers that create search engine indexes. Since this information makes up the vast majority of available content on the Web, we are potentially missing out on some pretty amazing resources.

A great starting point - track it back to see where it might have come from.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, March 31, 2013 5:02 PM

Curation was not a hot topic back in 2008 when Clay Shirky observed, "It's not information overload. It's filter failure." 


Now curation is becoming a way for indidividuals to share their expert interests and for all of us to assemble an expert's gallery of human curated topics that we want to follow. 


Is curation, the answer to the 'fact' of information overload? 

Library Staff's curator insight, April 1, 2013 7:50 PM

How low is the filter for quality bar now? Do we live in a world of filter failure?
