NWIC Virtual Library: Tour: Finding Information on the World Wide Web (Stop 2 of 5)

There are several sections of the Lummi Webpage where you can access he worldwide web: Reference, AIHEC (American Indian Higher Education Consortium) Virtual Library, Local Web Links, and Just for Kids. All of these sites have information links to the worldwide web.

AIHEC Virtual Library: The AIHEC Virtual Library contains an extensive set of web links that are organized by subject as a public or college library would be.  With special emphasis on Native American information, it covers a wide range of subject areas, including arts and humanities, business and economics, computers and the Internet, education, entertainment and leisure, health and medical sciences, law, government and political science, sciences and technology, social sciences, and general reference works.  It also links to magazines, journals, newspapers, online texts, and much more.  If you are looking for Native American information or information of general interest,  give the AIHEC Virtual Library a try.

Soon to Come ---Local Web Links: The Lummi Library staff has created links to information rich sites as well as to local media websites.

Reference: When you need to look something up quickly or just need general information on a topic, check the Reference section.  This section contains a web link to some basic reference works, including an encyclopedia, an almanac, a set of maps, a dictionary, Roget's Thesaurus, and Bartlett's Familiar Quotations.  If these don't have what you're looking for, there's a link to the AIHEC Virtual Library's Reference Sites section, which has many more reference works.

Just for Kids!: Whether you're looking for pictures for the kids to color or the coolest information about dinosaurs, you'll find it here. This link takes you directly to KidsClick!, which is a set of web links suitable for kids from preschool through high school.  The links are collected by professional librarians and organized by subject as a public library would be.  You can either select an area you are interested in or search the KidsClick! lists of links to find what you are looking for.  You can also specify a reading grade level on your search.
