FINDING DOCUMENTS ON THE WEB
Since the number of Web sites is growing at an exponential rate, it is
not an organized system. To find documents on a specific topic, you
can use a search engine. There are different search engines that
function in several different ways and are not all equally as effective,
especially when trying to find sites in another language. Some advice:
Always use the same keywords in several search engines. When you
have done it once, you will realize that the results can be very different,
even with 4 or 5 search engines. You can use the list below and click
on NET SEARCH/SEARCH which will lead you to English search engines.
Examine the results you obtain. You can click on the sites in the
list to have immediate access. You can also save these result files
on diskette or print them.
Certains search engines let you do Boolean searches.
Certains search engines offer links to the results of other engines.
To search for an exact phrase, put the keywords in quotation marks (for
example, "la chanson française").
Most search engines present results in the order of their importance
in relation to the keywords, generally expressed by a percentage.
You will sometimes find as well the number of words that separate the keywords.
This indications can be helpful, but sometimes one really wonders where the results came from.
