Web Search Tips

Use Google's Advanced Search to:
  • Limit searches to domains (like .edu, .org, .ca, etc.)
  • Search for terms only in a part of a document, like the title
  • To search for exact phrases, use quotation marks (eg: "SVC Library")
Evaluate websites:
  • Who wrote it?
  • What is the website about?
  • When was it created or updated?
  • Where does it come from - government, business, educational institution?
  • Why was it created - to sell a product, to provide opinions, to educate?
