Google Advanced Search – why didn’t I know this before?

As I move through the internet search strategy tips and a number of search engines I am starting to wonder why I have never known about practically all of them.  It has made me aware of how complex search on the internet is and how overwhelming it must be for students to find information that is relevant and appropriate. Of particular note, learning how to find creative commons materials on google, flickr and you tube, very simple I might add, is definitely something I can start to show my students.  Most students I have in the library are simply snatching images from wherever they get them – with teachers none the wiser or educated.  Lots to get done in my school!
