Effective Internet Search [electronic resource]: Basic Tools and Advanced Strategies

Cambridge Educational (Firm)
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Formed decades ago from a small pool of data sources, the Internet has grown into a seemingly endless ocean of information-in which today's young researcher can easily get lost. This video introduces strategic, study-related online search methods that teenage or college-level viewers may not be familiar with, especially if they're accustomed to the more recreational side of the Internet. Outlining ways to formulate initial questions about a topic, the program offers examples of frequently used search engines (from Google to specialized databases) and how to take advantage of them using keywords, quotation marks, Boolean operators, nesting, wildcard and truncation symbols, and other typed-in directives. Result-oriented topics are also featured, including: the differences between primary, secondary, and tertiary sources; the best criteria for confirming the legitimacy of a particular Web site; and helpful techniques for searching within a site.
