    KidsClick: Worlds of WebSearching ****
    The Ramapo Catskill Library System put together a great site geared to
    help teach students how to search the web for the information they need.
    Do you understand how sorted subject guides (directories or indexes)
    work? Check out "World 2." Keyword searching is covered in three
    different "worlds" so that students can learn the importance of spelling
    and putting words into phrases.
