Blending traditional research methods with detailed instruction on how to use and evaluate electronic research technologies, RESEARCH STRATEGIES FOR A DIGITAL AGE equips students with the research skills they need for today's online environment. Author Bonnie Tensen introduces students to research by beginning in the digital library (i.e., the online catalog and databases). These library tools provide a controlled environment with credible sources, thus helping students develop the analytical skills necessary for locating and assessing sources.

Bonnie Tensen teaches English at Seminole State College of Florida in Sanford, Florida. She was specifically hired to increase and promote the use of computers and technology both in the classroom and as a research tool. Her efforts built on her previous work as a graduate student at the University of Florida, where she was involved in a groundbreaking networked writing environment project. A popular speaker, she has presented her unique approach at many conferences and led numerous seminars on incorporating the Internet in the classroom.
