It is not a crime to Google or use Wikipedia!

We should face the fact that we use these sources. But use them correctly. Find vocabulary, background and search terms. Then, use databases through Infohio and your public library. You do own at least one card from a Clevnet library or Akron Summit library, don't you? Encourage your students to have one, too. Your card number is a password to fantastic databases you may use with any Internet hook-up.
