Today, the Internet has become the new library, the place where people look for resources.
But what happens when some do not know how to navigate that system, and also, how can a user know what information to trust?
“Learning how to find the information you need on the Internet, and how to evaluate and appropriately use the information you find, can be challenging for both parents and students,” Saltzman said in his article.
The website list “is a look at some of the most comprehensive—and reliable—educational websites a student can bookmark and use to research school projects and homework assignments.”
The websites are classified according to different educational streams, thus having some websites providing information very useful to engineering students and other websites helpful for those studying literature.

* Information Literacy
* Fact Monster
* Microsoft Download Center
* Microsoft Student Experience
* Project Gutenberg
