- Handy links for distance learning grad students:
Boolean search methods
vary from engine to engine. Check the following for specific tips:
- Whatis.com: Good place for everyday quick look-ups of technical
words. Caveat: the definitions here, while handy, may not be complete,
and are usually not suitable as a formal reference for use on exams, in
research papers, etc.. http://www.whatis.com
- Search Engines: There are a lot of them out there. Some which
seem to give particularly good results for topics covered by graduation
courses (since they index internal pages on sites) are:
Ask Jeeves (ask.com)
http://www.deja.com/usernet/ (for searching USENET newsgroups)
Some searching tips: Just because you don't find a link in the top 10 results
for a search, don't give up. Try several different likely search
phrases or approaches. If that doesn't work, start looking more deeply in the search
results. Your T.A. has found "that perfect link" as low as
#463 in a search engine's result list. If that doesn't work, keep going
until you've tried several different engines. What you seek is nearly
always out there; nobody said it would be easy to find. Contact your T.A.
for help with searching the net.
