      6. Abstracting services and journals are an excellent way of surveying new publications quickly. Some are available on line or via CD ROM, others as bound volumes.

      7. The internet can be a good way of finding new material or accessing original collections. Many official and non-governmental organisations have excellent web sites. You can also access official reports and, for example, search a database of articles in the Times Educational Supplement spanning several years. The BBC has an excellent site, especially its news department, which has an extensive and authoritative archive: www.bbc.co.uk. The Google search engine can also be a good way of identifying new sources and data: www.google.com. However, you must remember that anyone can publish anything on the net. It is best to stay with well-known sources as a rule. Also, if you quote from web-based material, try always to give the web address and date that you accessed it (as part of the reference in your bibliography) so that readers can see the original.
