Google Tips & Tricks: Strategies to get great results from Google

Wednesday, March 19 at 10:00am to 11:00am

Carothers Library, LL11B 15 Lippitt Rd, University of Rhode Island, Kingston, RI 02881, USA

Google’s basic search is sometimes a good place to start researching, but the advanced search interface offers you far more precision. Google Scholar provides a good complement to library databases, but you can tweak settings to have it search the Library’s collection and export references to your citation manager. Learn more and save time in your research and personal life at this Search Savvy Seminar!  

Part of the University Libraries’ Search Savvy Seminar series.

Presented by:
Amanda Izenstark, Associate Professor, Reference & Instructional Design Librarian, University Libraries

This was very informative. I learned to use Google in different ways to enhance my searches, but I've also learned how Google operates (in terms of algorithms, pages changing, etc.), which I think is helpful to pass on to students. Good examples, moved along quickly. Thank you, Amanda!
