Web Searching Guides & Tutorials

The following guides and tutorials cover the basics of web searching, search strategies, search engines, subject directories, and other Internet search tools.

 

Subject Directories

Subject directories list websites by subject or topic. Many subject directories include websites that have been evaluated for quality and reliability.

 

Search Engines

Search engines are the most widely used Internet search tools; however, they have their limitations: they do not distinguish between reliable and unreliable web sites (it is up to you to evaluate the quality of the information they retrieve) and you must use them correctly to get the best results (click on the "How to use" and "Advanced Search" links for more information).

 

Blogs & Discussion Groups

 

Deep Web

The Deep Web (also referred to as the hidden or invisible web) consists of thousands of databases and other information resources whose contents cannot be retrieved by most search engines.
