Learn How to Use the Internet



The Basics of Searching on Google
Be selective with Keywords. 
Use and to narrow your search, or to widen it.
Use "Quotation Marks" to find specific phrases.
Google is not case-sensitive, but other search engines may be.  Check to make sure you are following their protocol.

Google Advanced Search Tips:
use Boolean operators, such as  AND (+), OR, and AND NOT(-). There must be a space before these. More complicated phrases can be formed with parentheses, such as dogs AND (Eskimos OR Terriers).
