• Make sure the material is in a format that you are comfortable with and that it is easy to use.
• Make sure your technology will support the material. For instance, if the material includes audio and video, you need at least a Pentium II computer and high-speed Internet access, such as a cable modem in order to access the material quickly.
• Check with your colleagues for suggestions on Web sites they have found useful.
• Find out if you can download the information for future reference.
