9508: RE: 9496: Seeking bibliography on Haitian women (fwd)
From: "Walton, Robert" <email@example.com>
A Google <www.google.com> phrase search, "Women in Haiti" returned more
usable info than your student can comfortably read in a semester. An
AltaVista <www.altavista.com> phrase search did likewise. I heartily
recommend learning/teaching others to use web-based search tools (search
engines) such as Google, AltaVista and others, a world of knowledge would be
opened to both! A caution- For extensive scholarly research, the web is not
a replacement for the library!
Both of the above search engines allow the use of a simple "phrase search"
which is performed by enclosing the search words in parentheses. I
encourage everyone to learn how to use their favorite search engine
effectively. "Mouse-click" on Google's "Advanced Search" link or
AltaVista's "Help" link. (AltaVista's "Help" is in small print at the bottom
of the AltaVista screen.)
