But I Read It on the Internet! by Toni BuzzeoSchool Library Journal (July 1, 2013)
Gr 3-5-Mr. Dickinsons students have opposing ideas on how to do proper research. Hunter relies on true books from the school library and Carmen believes that everything she reads on the Internet is true. Super librarian Mrs. Skorupski bounds in to save the day. She helps the fourth graders on their presidential fact-finding mission by teaching them how to evaluate and cite their resources, providing them with a terrific research tool, her Website Evaluation Gizmo. The girls and boys record a number of the facts on a Know/Want to Know/Learn chart. Hunter and Carmen disagree over whether George Washington actually had wooden teeth. For homework, they are assigned the task of verifying the story. To Hunters dismay, Mrs. Skorupski wants them to use Internet sources, no books. She advises him to visit the public library, where he and the librarian search the Internet for George Washington wooden teeth and then use Mrs. Skorupskis Gizmo to evaluate the website. At school the next day, Hunter is surprised when Carmen suddenly agrees with him. She changed her mind because thanks to her teacher she knew how to make sure the Internet was right! The cheerful illustrations of Hunter and his classmates perfectly capture their curiosity and eagerness to learn. Mrs. Skorupski, with her lesson-coordinated accessories and quirky cat-eye glasses, dances across the pages exuding energetic enthusiasm. Pair this fine addition to the series with Kathleen Fox and Lisa Downeys The Pirates of Plagiarism (Upstart, 2010) for a fun-filled lesson on information literacy.-Linda L.

Why shell out when you can read hundreds of novels without paying a dime? If you're like me, books are a refuge. I love finding a good story and that stays with me long after I finish the last chapter. That's where free digital libraries come in. Thanks to the internet, the concept of a personal library is changing.
A common refrain from writers on Twitter is that writing is hard. Often, this insight is accompanied by the rueful observation that tweeting is easy. The first pours from political orators; the second winds around friends at a bar. Most writing used to be regulated or self-regulated ; there were postcards and diary entries, but even those had standards. McCulloch begins with a taxonomy; different cohorts of users have different linguistic tells.
