Google Advanced Workshop
The UCI Libraries Present
Intersections...a series of Library workshops offering instruction on a variety of fascinating topics for intellectual enrichment and enjoyment.
Advanced Google Workshop
Google is consistently recognized as the best web search engine available to users of the free web. One reason for its popularity is its ease of use. In fact, Google is so easy to use, that most people apply only a small number of Google's services and features. The more you know about how Google works, its features and capabilities, the better it can serve your needs. Most people know to use Google when they have a need to find information; hence the addition of the word "google" as a verb to our vocabulary. But did you know that you can use Google for your e-mail service, you can locate businesses using its maps service, or you can improve your searches using advanced search techniques? “Google Advanced” will give you an opportunity to learn how to be a power user of this new and exciting technology.
Participants are expected to have basic fluency in using computer hardware (such as the mouse) and to have basic skills in searching the Internet using Google. Some experience using e-mail software is also desired.
Melanie Sellar works as the Community Outreach Librarian with the UC Irvine Libraries. She coordinates the community outreach programs, including the Teachers Information Literacy Institute (TILI) and the School Partnerships in Research and Information Technology (SPIRIT) program.
