CUTTING-EDGE INTERNET SEARCH TECHNIQUES
9 January 2007, London
Efficient searching of the Internet can be invaluable when dealing with enquiries. Simply entering a few keywords, or juggling a string of Boolean algebra into your favourite search engine, can sometimes produce just what you need to give a good answer.
However, on those occasions when you end up with absolutely no hits, or, worse still, thousands of apparently useless results, it can be extremely frustrating.
BENEFITS OF ATTENDING
This course is designed to help you use the Internet as effectively and efficiently as possible when dealing with enquiries. During the day participants will look at the latest thinking on searching the Internet. Practical examples and "hands on" approaches will reveal the nature of the Internet, and help participants discover the most appropriate ways to find relevant materials.
BY THE END OF THE COURSE PARTICIPANTS WILL HAVE:
· in-depth knowledge of the World Wide Web, the invisible web and the human web.
· the ability to choose appropriate search engines and other discovery tools
· templates to help with advanced search strategies
· a set of URLs to keep them updated on advances in search techniques
· "hands on" experience of trying out some cutting edge techniques
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Those who have been using the Internet to answer enquiries for at least two years. Participants must understand the basic mechanics of using the net, and have some experiences of the joys and disappointments of searching.
COURSE LEADER: TERRY KENDRICK
A daily user of the Internet, Terry originally trained as a librarian and worked in reference libraries. In addition to teaching internet skills to librarians Terry also teaches consultancy, information and internet skills on the UEA MBA programme.
