Anything but Google: Top Tips


  • Karen Blakeman


The Google alternatives workshop is a regular on the UKeiG training calendar. We don’t guarantee that you will be weaned off Google by the end of the day but we do try and highlight other search engines and tools that might be better for certain types of information. At the end of the workshops the participants pull together a list of Top Tips. These could be a tool or website they have just discovered, a search command, or a general approach or strategy to searching. The tips below are a combined list from two workshops attended by people from all sectors and types of company, and even included a couple of self-employed researchers. The sessions covered both general search tools and specialist services, and the Top Tips is an interesting mix of strategy and specific sites.
