Beyond Google:
Advanced Search Strategies to Enhance Your
Teaching and Scholarship

presented by Brian Udermann and Jen Snook

Thursday, February 21, 9:30-10:15 a.m., 161 Wing Technology Center

Google is a very powerful search engine and currently dominates the number of Internet searches conducted (roughly 70%).  However, Google might not always be the best choice when you consider the range of Internet search tools available.  There are hundreds of alternative search engines that can be used when trying to find information electronically.  This session will explore sites that can be used to perform blind comparisons on the three top search engines (Google, Yahoo!, Bing), search for videos, and search for discipline-specific information (Science, Arts, etc.).  We will even explore a search engine that contributes to your charity of choice for every search you conduct.  Bring your laptop or iPad as we will actively be conducting searches during this session
