Searching Online
I know... You are sitting there thinking, "hmmm, I just google it! What's the big deal? You type a word in and hit go!"

And that's where we begin.
Search Strategy 2
If at first you don't succeed, try Synonyms.

A synonym is is a word with the same or similar meaning of another word.


Example:
If you've tried searching for
rare cats
but haven't found what you are looking for, try searching for
exotic cats, rare felines, or exotic felines
.
Search Strategy 3
Place quotation marks around specific words or specific phrases you are looking for.


Example:
If you want information on the president's residence, search on
"White House"
rather than just
white house
that would pull up every white colored house out there.

This is a good one to use when looking up a song without knowing the name of the song.
Strategy
Using a Search Strategy can help you search effectively and efficiently.
Vocabulary
Effective
- successful in producing a desired or intended result.


Efficient
- achieving maximum productivity with minimum wasted effort or expense

Strategy
- a careful plan or method for achieving a particular goal.
Search Strategy 1
Use multiple, specific, descriptive key words for narrower results.


Example
: Searching for
concerts
will lead to a variety of musical events, ticket purchasing, opportunities, and tour dates. Searching for
underground hip-hop shows DFW area
will lead to narrower, location-based results.
But what does that have to do with
Searching?
How many times have you had to search through all the search results to find what you were looking for?
How much time and energy have you wasted looking through your search results to find what you were looking for?
But what

Make a note of searches so you don't repeat them.
Add a minus sign before a word to show that you don't want that one included.


Example:
If you are searching for
mullet
but you want the fish and not the hairstyle, you would enter:
mullet -hair
Search Strategy 5
Look for two words at once by placing OR between them.


Example:
If you want information on Cornell but you're not sure whether it's a college or a university, search on
Cornell College OR university
.

NOTE: the OR has to be capitalized.
If you have an actual plan for your search before you begin it should lead to a more effective and efficient search.
