Hi everyone!  Please hit delete if you don't want to read this
shameless plug for my MLA CE course.

Just wanted to point out that I will be teaching a course at MLA this
year titled "Quality Filtering of Web Sites".  Full information is on
page 13 of the Preliminary Program.
The very issue Lynn discusses in her message will be addressed by the
course, which is designed to strengthen evaluative skills for
determining the quality (or lack thereof) of information that can be
found on the web.
Hope some of you plan to attend.
