April: Power Searching: Improve Your Techniques and Amaze Your Customers

An Infopeople online course, April 23, 2013 to May 20, 2013

Do your searching skills need a power boost? Want to be more efficient in the way you search for information online? Since 2006 Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary has included the word "google," which it defines as a verb. Despite that, seasoned searchers are well aware that there is more to life than Google, as well as more to learn about Google. In this course instructor Rita Gavelis will help you…

·         Compare engines and their features in order to determine the best resource for the information need
·         Customize a search engine for more effective searching
·         Recognize faulty research patterns and information seeking behavior
·         Identify and compare the pros and cons of the free hidden web to paid databases
·         Develop tip sheets and pathfinders that will assist your customers with online searching

Instructor: Rita Gavelis

Fee: $75 for those in the California library community and Infopeople Partners, $150 for all others.
