60 Seconds Guide to Students Effective Search Techniques

What a happy accident, just a couple of days since I published the popular post : 12 Fabulous Academic Search Engines , now there is this beautiful flowchart about some important search engines to use besides Google. You can share this cheat sheet with your students and show them how important it is to not ALWAYS rely on Google as sole search engine.

I think it is a habit most of us have developed ( not acquired ) while surfing the net. I personally tend to favour Google over all the other search engines but I do use several others especially when my search is academically focused or content area specific. In fact Google is a great search engine only when you master its tips and tricks and I have published several guides on how to teach our students Google search tips, check out this resource if you haven't read it yet.

Without further ado, I will let you discover the search engines this flowchart has for you. I hope you will find them useful. Enjoy

  1. Although, this infographic is about marketing and advertising research, instead of knowledge or academic research. Still, nice design and does get people to consider that there is life outside of google search.
