Search engines such as Google fail to cover a large amount of the academic information available on the internet. This includes the content of many databases, e-journals, e-books and other research resources such as newspaper archives. This course will provide you with the opportunity to access and search this hidden information using library resources. It will also compare the search strategies required for Google Scholar and Google Books with those required for library resources.
The aim of the course is to help you evaluate the effectiveness of Google Scholar, Google Books and QSearch for your research
