  • SIU Law Library: Introduction to the Internet
    Protocol A protocol for operating TCP IP over phone lines Protocols Agreed upon sets of instructions that computers use to access different types of Internet resources or perform other Internet functions There are several major protocols each associated with different Internet media In the early days of the Internet you needed different software for each of these functions Now most browsers bundle several protocols into one system so you move seamlessly from media to media The most common protocols you will use on the Internet are TCP IP PPP HTTP FTP POP SMTP and Telnet RDF Resource Description Framework a general framework for describing an Internet resource by application of XML developed by the World Wide Consortium W3C RSS RDF Site Summary method of describing news announcements forum postings or other Web content for distribution by an online publisher A special program is usually required to read RSS distributed information but many such programs can be downloaded for free return to top Search engine Internet tools that allow you to search large databases of Internet sites These are discussed in more detail in Using the Internet for Legal Research Server A remote computer or software that makes information available or performs some function for a user via a client computer SHTML Server side include Hypertext Markup Language Web file with the suffix of shtml that includes some information that will be added on the fly by the server before it is sent to you SLIP Serial Line Internet Protocol A protocol for operating TCP IP over phone lines SMTP Simple Mail Transport Protocol Used for sending e mail Spam Unwanted e mail Usually refers to the mass mailing of commercial solicitations T1 connection Dedicated Internet access A full T1 connection is capable of 1 544K Fractional T1 is sometimes available from ISPs in increments of 256K 384K 512K and 768K TCP IP Transmission Control Protocol Internet Protocol The computer language that allows computers on the Internet to transmit data Telnet A program that allows you to connect to a remote computer Many library catalogs were available using Telnet before the introduction of web based online catalogs Trojan horse A virus hidden inside apparently harmless programming URL Uniform Resource Locator The standard way to refer to an Internet file location and the protocol necessary to locate it For example http www law siu edu lawlib is the URL for the SIU School of Law Library URLs can also begin with gopher telnet or ftp Viruses Pieces of computer programming code that can damage your computer or erase data from it Viruses can be transmitted via attachments to e mail downloads diskettes or CDs They are frequently disguised as something else and designed to automatically spread to other computers They can cause immediate damage or lie dormant until a certain time or event Weblogs or web logs see blogs World Wide Web Also referred to as the Web Multimedia Internet sites connected by hypertext links that can contain text graphics sound and video Worms Self replicating viruses that duplicate themselves until they have consumed so much memory that the computer no longer functions properly XML Extensible Markup Language Used to describe the content of a web page in terms of what data is being described For more definitions consult http whatis techtarget com return to top C Computer Viruses Your computer should have virus software such as Norton AntiVirus or McAfee VirusScan and you should keep the virus definitions up to date You should also be sure to install Microsoft security and critical updates Viruses can be transmitted via e mail attachments downloads diskettes or CDs The person from whom you received the virus was probably unaware their computer was infected Some viruses can be quite harmful erasing data or causing your hard disk to require reformatting Besides having up to date virus software you should be very careful about opening e mail attachments that you are not expecting even if they come from someone you know A recent e mail virus was dubbed an Internet IQ test by the New York Times because a nyone who has not learned the most important computer security message of the last two years do not open any unexpected files that come attached to e mail messages ends up infecting the computer John Schwartz They Looked They Clicked a New E Mail Virus Conquered N Y Times C10 Dec 5 2001 Virus warnings circulated by e mail are so often hoaxes that an entire website has been dedicated to their debunking Before you forward any virus warnings you receive please check them out at http vmyths com Both Norton and McAfee also have pages listing the latest real threats as well as the hoaxes More importantly check Vmyths com before you take any action based on a mass e mail warning A couple of years ago a warning went around advising people to delete a certain file from their computers It was true that a virus was circulating under that file name What the warning did not mention was that all computers have a file by that name and it should only have been deleted if in fact it was infected When in doubt check with an expert that you know Most of the hoax warnings refer to some specific authority such as IBM has warned that XXXX is the most dangerous virus ever This is referred to as False Authority Syndrome see http www vmyths com fas fas1 cfm for more info return to top D E Mail Etiquette and Security Electronic mail is usually referred to as e mail E mail is faster than the U S Postal Service which is sometimes called snail mail on the Internet and other document delivery services It is less intrusive than the telephone and allows you to transmit large amounts of information quickly and accurately Long distance charges are usually not an issue You can send e mail at any time and the recipient can read

  • SIU Law Library: Using the Internet for Legal Research
    known as meta search engines Some examples are Vivisimo http vivisimo com and Dogpile http www dogpile com A good meta search engine should do more than just list results from other search engines For example Vivisimo ranks its results by the combined scores of the search engines that retrieved each item It also shows the ranking by each search engine Sponsored links are identified as such and grouped at the top of the list in shaded boxes In a frame to the left of the combined search results Vivisimo clusters the results into category folders and subfolders A special search box in the cluster frame allows searchers to search within the clusters Dogpile allows the searcher to view the results by relevance or by search engine In both views each sponsored link is identified as such but interspersed within the results list Dogpile also provides a column of clustered results It does not at the time of this writing have a feature for searching within the original results In general you enter your search terms and the meta search engine translates your query into the search language of each search engine and runs simultaneous searches in a number of search engines You have some options over which search engines will be used the search mode and what part of the Internet will be searched When you use a meta search engine you should keep your search query simple If you use a connector or limiter that an individual search engine does not recognize it will return no results even if it has indexed pages that meet your criteria These meta search engines are helpful if you just need to find some information on a certain topic but if you are looking for a specific document you will probably be better served by the precision of a specific search site such as those discussed in this article return to top Historical Web Research The Internet Archive http www archive org is a growing digital collection of Internet sites and other cultural artifacts in digital form Using a search engine named the WayBack Machine researchers can see how the web page at a certain URL looked on previous dates Simply enter the URL and click on the Take Me Back button The WayBack Machine displays a list of dates for which archived copies of that page are available The Internet Archive can also be helpful if a site is down or the page you want has been removed from the site return to top The Invisible Web The search engines discussed above are so good and the visible web is so large that it may seem you would need nothing else to meet all of your research needs In fact the visible web accounts for only a small percentage of all information available on the web What is the Invisible Web The short definition is that the invisible web is all the web content not included in general search engines and web directories The authors of The Invisible Web Uncovering Information Sources Search Engines Can t See estimated in 2001 that the invisible web was between two and fifty times larger than the visible web Among the types of information that are not indexed by general search engines and web directories for various reasons are the following pages to which no other pages links the search engine s crawler can t find them without links to follow pages from which crawlers are blocked by the webmaster using Robots Exclusion Protocol or passwords images audio and video there is usually not enough text to index non HTML text file types that are difficult for search engines to index PDF Postscript Flash Shockwave programs compressed files indexing is time consuming and costly and until recently documents available in these file types were not relevant to many researchers databases that generate dynamic pages based on information the user enters into a form the crawlers can t fill out forms even if they could the specialized query tools would still be the best way for obtaining the data dynamic pages generated by a non interactive script e g on the fly customized pages for individual users of which there is no need to index there are also cost and security reasons that search engines avoid such pages real time data e g weather stock quotes or flight arrival times it would be costly to index this constantly changing data and it is so ephemeral that it would not be very useful once it was outdated pages that fall within two or more of these types But if they are invisible how are you supposed to find these resources If you use any of the current awareness tools discussed in Introduction to the Internet you will probably hear about many helpful sites you might not otherwise find Many of the sites we have recommended in these pages fall within the invisible web If you take advantage of some of the current awareness resources we have listed at the ends of chapters you will read reviews of websites on the visible and invisible web Some of the best directories to Invisible Web resources include Chris Sherman and Gary Price The Invisible Web Uncovering Information Sources Search Engines Can t See CyberAge Books 2001 See also the companion site at http www invisible web net accessed Mar 16 2004 Librarians Index to the Internet at http www lii org accessed Jan 15 2007 In fact you have already used resources within the invisible web if you have used a library catalog on the web looked up a zip code at ZIP 4 Code Look up found a telephone number using Switchboard or AnyWho obtained a map or driving directions from Mapblast or Mapquest researched publicly traded company filings at FreeEDGAR or checked the weather at

Finding and Evaluating Legal Information There are three main ways to find something on the Internet A single research session can involve one or all of these methods You can use a search engine You can start at a good legal research site and follow links to the file you want This is sometimes referred to as surfing or browsing Some examples of good starting points were discussed above You may have the URL directly to a file you want because someone told you about the site or you read an article that mentioned it If you use any of the current awareness tools discussed in Introduction to the Internet Current Awareness Tools you will probably hear about many good Internet sites Internet legal research should be done with the understanding that only a small subset of legal materials are available on the Internet Primary legal resources such as case opinions statutes and regulations did not begin to appear on the Internet until the mid 1990s Very few older sources have been added When you find information on the Internet whether it is legal or non legal information you need to evaluate it for quality reliability and currency Most of the government agencies placing information on the Internet cannot afford the quality control necessary to guarantee accuracy and completeness You will frequently find warnings on government pages to the effect that the information is made available as a public service but it should not be relied upon unless it is confirmed by checking the official publication You should also evaluate information you find on the Internet for reliability Ask yourself who is making the information available What are their credentials Is it an official source or at least a reliable source or is it someone whose bias may affect the accuracy or reliability of the information If you cannot tell from the web page who is responsible for the information you should hesitate to use it unless you can otherwise confirm its reliability You must also evaluate information for currency When was the web page you are using last updated Primary legal information made available for free by the government is frequently out of date You should be able to tell from a good website when it was last updated If there is no statement about currency you will have to find a way to be sure your information is up to date return to top E Links Bookmarks and URLs Most web pages contain hypertext links to other pages on the same or distant computers The links are frequently underlined text in blue or another contrasting color However anything on the page can be a link including graphics On a well designed web page the links will be obvious To identify the links use your mouse to point at the text or graphic If the arrow changes to a hand pointing it is pointing at a link Click once to go to the linked page Once you find a website that will help you in your research you may want to bookmark it or add it to your list of favorites so that you won t have to search for it again With Netscape you can add an Internet address to your bookmarks by clicking on Bookmarks and choosing Add Bookmark If you use Internet Explorer click on Favorites and choose Add to Favorites Both browsers allow you to organize your bookmarks into folders It is a good idea to review your bookmarks occasionally and delete those that are no longer useful To organize or delete bookmarks on Netscape click on Bookmarks then Edit Bookmarks On Internet Explorer click on Favorites then Organize Favorites After adding a bookmark or favorite check it by clicking on Bookmark or Favorite and then on the bookmark you just added Some websites are set up so that the displayed address and therefore the address that will be saved as a bookmark does not change when you click on a link at that site even if the link is to a web page on a completely different computer network For example if I connect to the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws web page at the University of Pennsylvania s Biddle Law Library http www law upenn edu bll ulc ulc frame htm the displayed address will continue to be http www law upenn edu bll ulc ulc frame htm regardless of which link I follow from the right frame despite the fact that each of the pages to which I connect has its own file name Furthermore the displayed address does not change even if I click on a link to a website that is not on the University of Pennsylvania system If the URL displayed does not change when you go to a web page that you want to bookmark go back to the message or page that contained the link to the website you want to bookmark
