Do you have trouble in collecting specific information published in an electronic journal/book or other documents? How do we use the search engines in order to obtain the desired information? These and other related questions will be discussed in a two-day Training Course on Retrieval of Digital Library Documents to be held on 28 and 29 July 2009 at SEAMEO BIOTROP, Bogor.
Information and communication technology especially the internet rapidly changed. Information and current news could be retrieved very quickly and easily through internet (World Wide Web or www). The same is the case with library documents. Various kinds of library documents such as scientific papers, journals, and even electronic books (e-book) could be retrieved via the internet. To find the appropriate desired information a good search and retrieval method is needed.
