Tip from the Workshop

#4 Consider Alternative Search Engines.

While Google may seem like a comfortable sweater to most of us, there are other search engines that have special features (e.g., protecting your privacy) and are designed to accomplish specific search tasks (e.g., searching for online videos). These articles provide some suggestions:

Six Google Search Alternatives that Respect Your Privacy, USA Today

Also, if your search is not fruitful through one search engine, results may (will) differ when you use another. Don't miss out!
