Exploiting Google


  • Karen Blakeman




A lot is happening at Google and it is not just the new logo. Technologies such as artificial intelligence are being used across all of Google’s projects and that includes search. So we decided it was time to revamp and extensively update the UKeiG advanced Google workshop to include Google’s new approach to search and how it affects results. The first “New Google, New Challenges” was hosted by Manchester University Library on the 10th September. Understanding how Google works “underneath the bonnet” is just the start. You then have to work out how to use the search tools and specialist databases - many of which are well hidden - to ensure that you are getting quality results. Towards the end of the day I asked the workshop participants to compile a list of Top 10 Tips. This is what they came up with.
