Note: Dr. Harris' 1996 book An Internet Education: How to do Research on the Internet is still in print but is not recommended as a text in planning current online research strategy due to the many changes in methods and available tools since its original publication. Instead, for a comprehensive text on online research methods, see the forthcoming The Essential Handbook for Online Marketing and Advertising Research (early 2007), also by Dr. Cheryl Harris.
