The file consists of teaching aids for in-house, library staff workshops on electronic information. Delivered during the early years of electronic information, the workshops included using CD-ROM* databases and Boolean search functions, as well as the research potential of the World Wide Web, and the Lexis/Nexis periodical database service.

Most of the file is dedicated to the Internet - terminology and the functions of the World Wide Web : connecting to MATRIX (Ryerson computer network system) from which one could access e-mail, the Ryerson or Library home pages, discussion and news groups, or search the Internet using Gopher or browsers such as Mosaic (later Netscape), and surfing the Net with search engines (Alta Vista, Lycos, Yahoo, etc.).
