Welcome to this site about tools and strategies for searching the Web. It is a companion site to the courses and workshops I teach – a kind of notebook where I record news items and developments related to search engines, search technology, browser aids, desktop tools, academic or scholarly resources – and anything else that will help the novice searcher become better, and the experienced searcher to stay up to date. I am glad to share this with you, and will invite comments from time to time.
You may subscribe to the postings on the Internet News Blog using either RSS or a daily email.
The WebSearchGuide will have occasional articles on search tools and their use.
