The World Wide Web is a fantastic place to find all kinds of information. The only problem is trying to find the exact information you need. Because there is so much information online, it is rather easy to get stuck in the Web and not find what you were looking for. The following Web sites have some good advice for how to search the Web and get the information you need.

Subject vs. Keyword Searches
Computerized keyword searching allows you to find more information because the computer looks at words in the titles and content of a source as well as the subject. It also allows you to find more specific information because each source yields many more keywords than subjects.
