Welcome to LIB 53, Advanced Internet Searching Techniques
Please note: there is no on-campus orientation for this course.
Read the information contained on this page, visit and review
our class website, and then, unless you have questions, you may begin
working on Assignment #1.
Your instructor's name is Alex Swanner (that's me!)
In addition to being an instructor, I am also a librarian at
De Anza College.
Are you ready to go to the next level with your internet searches? During this class
we will look at the Google Advanced Search options. We will also learn about the
"invisible web", which is part of the web that is not indexed by general search engines.
And finally, as with all the classes I teach, we will spend some time evaluating websites
and discovering who is responsible for their content.
Be prepared to spend a minimum of 1-2 hours hours per week using and studying the course materials.
