Searching the Internet: Google and beyond

to be held at
The John Rylands University Library, University of Manchester 
Wednesday, 1st April 2009, 9.30 - 16.30

Some comments from delegates attending this meeting in 2008:
"Fascinating insight into the world beyond Google "  "One of the best workshops I've ever attended".. "A revelation! - enjoyed every minute"

Course Outline
With the major search engines claiming coverage of over 20 billion web pages in their databases, it is becoming increasingly difficult to locate relevant information. Most of us head straight for Google when we want to search the Internet but Google is not the only search tool. This workshop looks at recent developments at Google and the alternatives, especially the new kids on the block and Web 2.0 'stuff'. Karen Blakeman will take you through the best of the search engine world and highlight how they can be used to significantly improve your results. By the end of the day, participants will have a vital toolkit to help them search more effectively, including key search tools, comparisons, top tips and essential search techniques. 

Topics to be covered include: 

*	  different types of search tools and how they work
*	  making the most of Google and new features
*	  alternatives to Google
*	  advanced search techniques to help you track down the so-called "hidden web"
*	  image, audio, video and news
*	  blogs, RSS, wikis and Web 2.0 resources
*	  setting up your customised search engine
*	  tracking down pages that have disappeared
	
Delegates will have ample opportunity to test out advanced search techniques and to compare different search engines. A significant part of the day will be taken up with practical sessions; exercises will be provided but delegates are free to try out searches of their own. This workshop is suitable for all levels of experience. The techniques and approaches covered can be applied to all subject areas.

**** N.B. Places on this course are strictly limited because of access to PCs so please book early to avoid disappointment ****
