GETTING THE MOST OUT OF GOOGLE(tm)
19 FEBRUARY 2009, LONDON
How do you Google? Without doubt Google is the information professional's general purpose search engine of choice but many of us perform searches simply by entering subject terms. This can often bring back good results but not always, because we are not using Google(tm) in the most effective way. This one-day hands-on CILIP course will teach you the techniques needed to bring the most relevant hits to the top of your search list.
* How it works and why it matters
* Advanced search functions
* The future - what's going on in the labs?
