Yesterday I published a short guide to using Google Books. By request from a handful of readers I’ve now put together a short tutorial on accessing Google’s advanced search tools. This guide is meant as an introduction to using Google’s advanced search tools that will help your students discover content that lies deeper than the first few pages of a typical Google search.
The guide was created without signing into a Google account because not every student has a Google account (much to Google’s chagrin). If your students do have Google accounts there are some other search features that they can access.
If you have a favorite search tip that you would like to share, please leave a comment below.
