Search Strategies

Workshops

Do you know the pro-tips for searching the web?

Using search engines like Google to find information online has never been easier. However, to get the quickest and best results sometimes it can be helpful to access the lesser known search tricks and tips used by professionals. For example, special characters like #, $, -, +, % all have a purpose and leveraging search operators with your keywords can narrow the scope to the information you are seeking.

We have a search workshop designed for both Apple and Android users called, Tech Talks: Search Strategies (Apple/Android). This workshop covers what matters most for good searching (and what doesn’t matter). We will show you the most useful tips and tricks for searching online. Search the library's virtual calendar to register for upcoming Tech Talks events.
