Web Searching Presentations Available

Over the semester break, Steve and I presented a workshop on search engines, and various techniques for saving time and getting better results. Steve talked about using the Advanced Search features within Google, for example: limiting by format, using phrase searching, synonyms, and domain-specific searching. My piece focused on scholarly search tools like Scirus and Google Scholar, the newest SUNY information tools, Google’s Book Search, and subject-specific search tools for travel, jobs, and real estate.
