While you've probably "googled" everything from your old high school teachers to the menu of your favorite restaurant, there are probably some things you didn't know about Google that can help you be a more precise and efficient researcher. The library just updated three Powerpoint Presentations on its Handouts and Research Guides page on using a resource that you have do doubt used many times. Take a few minutes to view these tutorials and you could be surprised at what you've been missing. For example:
In Google Search Tips: Lesser Used Features learn about using Google as a dictionary, a calculator, a metric converter, and more.
In Google Search Tips: Lesser Used Databases, learn about Google News, Maps, Books, Scholar, and more.
In Google Search Tips: Advanced Features learn about how to use wildcards to search for commonly misspelled words or title variations, using query modifiers, and much more!
