Intermediate Search Engines Class



I previously blogged about the Basic Search Engines class I teach once in awhile. So, I thought I’d be thorough and also mention the Intermediate Search Engines class I do.

Both of these classes are taught for the Kansas City Metropolitan Library & Information Network (KCMLIN), a regional library training and resource sharing consortium for the Kansas City area. Library staff take the classes for CEU credits.

The intermediate search engines class goes deeper into digging information out of search engines. I update it in little bits here and there, but probably need to give it an overhaul. What do y’all think? Anyone have some suggestions for me? I’d sure love ‘em!

    One of the suggestions offered in a session I attended at the Internet Librarian Conference last November was to include “clustered” search engines – perhaps on or near your result manipulation slide? Clusty is the one I show in my classes at the Missouri River Regional Library, and students especially love it!
    I may have to, um, borrow some ideas from your slides, too – the Google search operators (inurl, site, etc.) are great tools and I don’t think I give them enough airtime in my Advanced Search session. Thanks for the link to your materials!
