    • What the critics say

      Students think they know how to search. You know it’s far more complex than they know. No matter how skilled you are, the latest edition of Phil Bradley’s Expert  Internet Searching needs to be on your professional shelf. Most of you are familiar with different types of search engines including meta-search, and deep web search engines, but he goes even further with social media search engines and more. Bradley devotes a full chapter to the ins and outs of searching Google with other chapters on Visual Searching, Finding People, and Multimedia Search Engines. He details strengths and weaknesses of various search engines and intersperses short “Did you know?”’ boxes. His final chapters deal with Hints and tips for better searching with sample search examples, Search utilities and resources to make life easier, and The future of search. The index is a guide in itself to the realms beyond Google.
