Advanced Google: Searching Techniques for Better Results

Workshop for Research Students and Staff

We all use Google but most of the time we simply tap in a string of search terms and hope for the best, it's a hit and miss process at best!

Using Google to supplement finding research information requires a more structured search to obtain quality results and, while this is easy with academic databases, with a search engine like Google things are not so straightforward.

This session will outline, with some live searches, how using search strategy techniques and Google's range of search options can improve your searching. Note: This is NOT a hands on session.

Time and Place: Thursday 16th May, 12:00pm - 1:00pm, Wolfson Suite, Harold Cohen Library.

This event relates to the Knowledge and intellectual abilities domain of the Researcher Development Framework.

Places on this workshop are limited and must be booked in advance. Please REGISTER to book your place.
