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.

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!
