Surfing the world wide web for chemistry resources: an introductory tutorial
Issue Date: 
Teaching and Learning, 16(2),61-80
The World Wide Web (WWW) is the most recent hypertext information service to arrive on the lnternet. In a hypertext information
system, the reader may browse items of information in a non-sequential manner. This browsing is done by looking up predefined associative links between documents containing related information. The items
of information that may be linked in the WWW documents or files include texts, pictures, sound clips and video clips.
Through surfing or navigating the lnternet via the WWW, teachers and students are able to access relevant and timely information on
practically any subject on a global basis. To access this information, they only need a computer system that is connected to the lnternet and relevant software for browsing the WWW.
In this article, I have provided some basic information for chemistry teachers and students on how to get started on surfing the
WWW and the types of chemical information and resources available on the lnternet. It is not within the scope of this short article to explain the technical details for connecting a computer system to the lnternet
or to load the relevant software. For such information, the reader should consult the computer guru or expert in their respective work place.
