Google Search Tips

Google and Google Scholar are useful tools. Sometimes Google will bring up content that is NOT available in the Library, including government research, videos, interviews, and archival research documents.  

Students may also employ the "trick" of adding .org; .edu; .gov to any Google search in order to retrieve more professional resources. For example:

Emperor Haile Selassie site:.edu

Ethiopia and Eritrea conflict site:.org

economic development and Ghana site:.gov

The librarians recommend that students start with a Library owned resource before relying on the Internet for sources and that they use a General library resource to find leads on websites.
