Use the Web

  • to find current information
  • to link to information provided by the library over the Internet
  • to find information about companies
  • to find information from all levels of government - federal to local
  • to find both expert and popular opinions

Examples of Web Addresses

Browser
Browsers provide a graphical interface to information on the Web. They display pages written in HTML and make it possible for you to click on links to jump to other pages. This neat invention is called hypertext.

The most popular browsers are Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Microsoft's Internet Explorer (IE). A newer browser is called Opera.  Regardless of which browser you choose, you can access the same information and can configure the software to match your personal preferences.

Each browser interprets some HTML elements in its own way, so the same page might display differently, depending on which browser you use.
