In DIETs we have a number of roles to play. We work with preservice teacher education wing, we organise inservice training programmes, we visit schools and guide teachers, we undertake research projects and other studies and so on. For all these activities, we may have to make use of a variety of resources. One of our major problems used to be locating of such resourcs. However, with the e-media entering the DIETs, such a problem has almost come to an end. The internet is an ocean of resourcs. Through the internet and email, we can collect lots of resources, edit them for our use and save them for future use. We can store the email IDs of resourceful people and correspond with them. We can browse through the internet and download material that we need. For all these activities, we need to understand how the internet works and how it can supply us innumerable resources. Locating resources in the internet by itself is an art. In this section, you will learn to browse the internet and locate appropriate resources for your use. You will familiarise yourself with different search engines and their possiblities, the way key words are used to search the web, the way we can narrow down our search to specific themes and how we can store the information that we get in those sites. Locating resources will also include human resources available through the internet along with the electronic resources.
