About this webinar

When Google and traditional search engines don't return useful information, don't stop there. We will explore resources that are invisible to Google and hidden deep within web sites and proprietary databases. The hidden web lies buried within the collections for commercial web sites, libraries, archives, and museums. We will also talk about the importance of indexes that deep-link into web  sites online, thus uncovering hidden gems of information that may not be found easily through a search engine query.

    I need to keep this handout handy! It will remind me to take time to read the introductory info on the collections. Thank you Cindi

    I particularly liked that Cyndi followed the syllabus in her talk. It made sense to me that way, rather than jumping all around.. I learned a lot I can use in researching.

    I read tutorials, I’ve never read an FAQ — I’ll have to try that! 🙂
