Searching with Google

Once you have tried Library sources first, you may wish to use Google for background information on your research topic. The following information shows how to make your Google search more effective.

  • Use quotations for phrase searching (for example, "early childhood education")
  • -site:.com added to your search will eliminate ALL .com sites in search results
  • site:.edu (or site:.gov) will ONLY search within the designated domain
