Web searching tips: Learn how to use Google Advanced Search to get better results by targeting your searches. Use smart searching techniques such as quotation marks to search for phrases, e.g. “sydney harbour bridge”. Examine the URL to determine the reliability of the site, e.g. generally.edu or.gov sites are more reliable. © Central Institute of Technology 2014 18

Online searching tips… Boolean Operators AND (+):limits the search as both keywords must appear in the document hazards AND events hazards +events OR: expands the search as either keywords will appear in the documents conferences OR seminars NOT (-): limits the search as excludes one of the keywords from the documents “outdoor events” NOT festivals “outdoor events” -festivals © Central Institute of Technology 2014 25
More searching tips…. Quotation marks: searches for the phrase e.g. “convention centre” In title: searches for that term within the title of web page e.g. intitle:festivals Site: searches for results from specific sites e.g. site:.gov site:.au File type: searches for a particular file type e.g. filetype:ppt filetype:pdf © Central Institute of Technology 2014 26
Ask yourself these questions… √ Is the information correct? √ Is the information relevant? √ Is the information reliable? (who is the author/sponsor?) √ Is the information up-to-date? √ Is the information free from bias? (is it trying to persuade?) √ Is it what I need? © Central Institute of Technology 2014 Stage 4: Evaluate your Information 28
