Library Journal Review

This great little book covers all the major search engines web users deal with every day‘AltaVista, Excite, HotBot, InfoSeek, Lycos, and Yahoo! The authors look at how search engines work, keywords and Boolean searching, and searching for businesses, people, zip codes, and Internet domain names. There is information to get technophobes comfortable with the basics as well as advanced techniques that will help professional researchers and librarians. Highly recommended. (c) Copyright 2010.
