- Information Literacy: Search Strategies
- This is a relatively new location for Debbie Abilock’s incredible chart, delineating how to select the best search engine or directory or specific web site for particular information requirements.
- Internet 101
- This guide will provide you with enough knowledge to have fun on the Internet, yet will not bore you with too many details. Think of this as a set of instructions...for people who don't like to read instructions! The site offers terminology, annotations of search engines, information on email, viruses, safe surfing, and chat rooms for the reluctant user.
- The Spider’s Apprentice
- The Spider's Apprentice, Spidap, is not another search engine. It doesn't crawl the Web looking for new URLs. It can't find stuff but it can help you find it yourself.
- Toolkit for the Expert Searcher
- Developed and maintained by Pat Ensor, the web page categorizes and annotates Web search tools, provides links, and purports to be a “Toolkit for the Expert Searcher.” It includes links to search directories, search engines, metasearch engines, multimedia searching, global searching, and the invisible web. LITA, Library & Information Technology Association, is a division of the American Library Association.
- Types of Search Tools - University of California at Berkeley
- The tutorial provides a reliable, up-to-date resource for searching the Internet by explaining types of search tools and by recommending effective search strategies.
- Web Searching, Sleuthing and Sifting
- This series of tutorials addresses a range of search topics. Users who have no prior knowledge of how to locate information on the Web as well as searchers with advanced skills have found the lessons to be helpful.
