[Tech tips] [Library lessons] Advanced search tips and tricks

Some days, you sit down in front of your computer and feel like a little kid with a big fat crayon in your hand, when what you really need is a fine point pen.

You want more advanced tools, not a clunky single search box that really doesn’t get you the results you need.

My colleague Dawn Emsellem put together a website of tips and tricks for doing advanced searches, and also for accessing some of the ‘deep web’, especially government resources that don’t appear in Google search results.  I invite you to check it out: Resources and Search Strategies.

I know I’ll be bookmarking this page and returning to it often; I’m also adding it to the “Information” box in right column of this blog’s homepage.  Thanks, Dawn!
