    A Faculty Outreach Grant allowed six Davidson Library librarians to create a workshop last summer for area high school teachers that emphasized researching and evaluating Internet databases. The July workshop was part of a series of information literacy workshops aimed at equipping teachers with the tools to construct their own research strategies, said Janet Martorana, project coordinator.
    A score of instructors, some from as far away as Port Hueneme, attended the workshop. Hueneme High School, one of UCSB's partner schools, was the site earlier this year of another information literacy workshop for teachers.
    "Response from the teachers was overwhelmingly enthusiastic; they intend to incorporate these research strategies into their curriculums," said Martorana.
    Other librarian/instructors besides Martorana are Sylvia Curtis, Sherry DeDecker, Sylvein Edgerton, Carol Gibbens, and Lorna Lueck.
