Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The information specialist who wishes to tap into the 320 million (and growing) available web pages may need help finding a starting point. Enter Bradley, formerly with SilverPlatter and now a private consultant, and his authoritative manual. Searchers of all experience levels can follow Bradley's approach to finding information, learning to locate documents on the web in a variety of subjects, how search engines and intelligent agents work, and how to use Internet resources that the average searcher may overlook--virtual libraries, databases, newsgroups, and mailing lists. One chapter provides 30 browser tips and tricks. An appendix lists all URLs mentioned in the book. Bradley's volume is comparable to Robert I. Berkman's Find It Fast: How To Uncover Expert Information on Any Subject (HarperCollins, 1997). By avoiding jargon, it is also more user-friendly than Reva Basch's Secrets of the Super Net Searchers (Professional Media, LJ 2/1/97).--Raymond Hamel, Wisconsin Regional Primate Research Ctr. Lib., Madison
School Library Journal
Designed to assist information professionals, this book succeeds on many levels. The introduction is a good overview of the Internet and how it can best be used. Bradley then goes into detail about the various types of search engines, other database resources, virtual libraries, intelligent agents, Usenet newsgroups, and mailing lists. He includes some sample searches, discusses the commercial aspects of the Internet, and describes what he sees as its future developments. Especially helpful are the last two chapters, which include "Thirty tips and hints for better and quicker searching" and "Sources for further help and assistance." The URLs mentioned are printed in bold type at the end of each chapter for easy access, and also listed in an appendix. Interesting "DID YOU KNOW?" facts and "HINTS AND TIPS" can be found in the sidebars. The writing is clear and easy to understand. Librarians will use the wealth of resources in this book for a long time to come.-Linda Wadleigh, Oconee County Middle School, Watkinsville, GA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Introduces experienced Internet searchers to sophisticated searching techniques with explanations and examples of exploiting search tools through relevance ranking and search term choices. The manual covers search engines, virtual libraries, commercial databases, and intelligent agents. Includes recommendations for the most reliable Internet tools, practical advice on configuring popular browsers, and tips for making the best use of software. Annotation c.
