This paper attempts to define the need for more online and CD-ROM searching skills being taught in secondary schools and better training of teachers in online and CD-ROM technology both in our nation's teacher education programs and for those already in the field. Examples of successful programs in high schools already using online technology are cited. The notion that it takes an expert searcher, and only an expert search to perform online searches is disputed. An argument that online CD-ROM technology be made available to all types of schools whether they be rich or poor school districts, is presented.
