At the recent OAK reference meeting we talked about several search tips, particularly as related to searching in google. Be sure to also see google’s articles on other tips.
Here are some things we like to use:
–Find a full-text magazine article by searching the article title with “PDF” at the end of the query
–You can narrow google search results by “date” on the left side
–You can sort google “images” by subject
–You can search magazines in google books!
–You can upload an image in google images to find “visually similar images”
