Learn how to help your library patrons deepen their internet searches to more effectively find information, images, videos, statistics, maps, books, definitions, translations, and more.
You know how to dash off a quick Google search, but do you know how to go further with your searching to get everything you actually need?
Written in an engaging, conversational tone, this handy guide introduces you to shortcuts and some of the hidden features and filters offered by many search tools―such as limiting by site, domain, or date―and to several free but little-known search tools. With concrete examples and practical how-to tips, you’ll learn to effectively search Google, Wolfram Alpha, social media platforms, and other internet search tools―and how to teach your patrons to do the same. The information comprised in this volume can be easily shared with patrons to help them in their searches and may be used in information literacy courses.
