Finding, Storing and Sharing Information Online
Choice of Browser & Search Engine
There are multiple browsers available, all with different strengths and weaknesses.
What is a browser?
Use different browsers to access different content. Be flexible in your choice of browser.
Your search engine is another important tool. Selecting the right one for the task in hand can make searching a lot easier. A list of links to relevant databases and webpages useful to your particular subject can be found on the library's Subject Guide pages.
There are a variety of other search engines out there: don't rely on Google. Sometimes you will find better results by using one of the alternatives.
Whilst Google is the world's most popular search engine, often it is not used to its full capacity.
Google Scholar is an excellent search engine for scholarly materials.
Searching for Images
You might want to search for images to support your writing and research. Finding copyright approval can be difficult so use a specific image search engine to do this.
