Internet Search: About the Book
Best Search Engine Book Award
Pandia Search Central, February, 2005
Edward N. Baylin and Judith Gill have written an excellent
introduction to internet searching called
Search: E-Searching Made Easy!
The amount of information is staggering. There are chapters
covering search tools and strategies, search query basics, search
examples, and advanced search interfaces. However, the text never
gets too complicated, and the book will benefit both professional
researchers and web search beginners.
The so-called Reference Manual is just as important as the
regular chapters, as it lists the search features and parameters of
the search engines covered and gives examples on how to use their
search form interfaces.
There is also a large number of external references and links.
The book exists both in a printed version and as an ebook. Given
that there are close to 600 pages with text, you cannot read it all
on the screen, and the ebook cannot be printed.
Hence you definitely need the printed version of the book. The
best option is to buy the printed book as well as the ebook. You can
then use the ebook as a reference tool, and get the best out of the
hyperlinks found in the ebook.
