Whatever you want, or need, to know about, the internet is probably your best place to start hunting for information. But while many people will try to advise you on what are the best search terms to type into Google or Bing, there's actually more to effective online searching than merely coming up with a good set of keywords.
For example, it's often useful to consider what type of information you want returned. If you want to know about, say, household security or the Battle of Hastings, don't just search for those terms. Add qualifiers in order to try to find authoritative, reliable information. My favourite such qualifier at the moment is "conference presentation" or "conference proceedings". Chances are, you'll find the information you're looking for in the form of a PowerPoint presentation, prepared by someone who knows what they're talking about and made available free of charge.
A couple of months ago, a major SharePoint conference took place in Barcelona, Spain. Registering to attend the conference would have cost around $1000. But all of the presentations can now be downloaded free of charge from http://www.sharepointeurope.com/community/member/presentation-archive by anyone who's interested.

Literacy in Ireland
In the past literacy was considered to be the ability to read and write. Today the meaning of literacy has changed to reflect changes in society and the skills needed by individuals to participate fully in society. It involves listening, speaking, reading, writing, numeracy and using everyday technology to communicate and handle information.
Hi, my name is Loreto and I'm an adult literacy tutor. I created this website to keep track of all things useful I have come across. Sometimes I am given a link by someone and if its not put on here it can be forgotten about. If you come across something you think is useful or even just fun, drop me a note to let me know and I will put it on here. Thank you for your time and I hope you find this website useful.
