This session will cover how to search Google and Google Scholar effectively. Whilst caution is often given to the merits of using Google for academic research, there exists an increasing amount of legitimate information that can be accessed via search engines. The challenge is being able to find this information amongst the huge number of results that a search returns.

This session will look at how you can target and filter your search results to access the most relevant research. You will gain an understanding of how different search engines work and how you can use advanced search techniques to refine your searches to return focused results.
