It's a slow news day so here's a couple of pointers to help brush up on your online research skills.

Safari is an interactive tutorial which helps users to learn about accessing, finding and reviewing information. The site has been developed by the Open University, and while a handful of its pages make specific references to the OU, almost all of its content is relevant to anyone wanting to improve their research skills. There are many other sites that cover similar themes, but Safari is probably the best example I've seen.

Also, for any Wikipedia addicts who may read this blog, this entertaining article on the BBC website may help to remind you why you should really be looking for more reliable sources to reference in your work.
