Book Description:

In this second edition of Online Searching, Markey (Univ. of Michigan) provides a welcome update to her comprehensive, highly organized guide. As in the first edition, the current work provides a general introduction to searching for materials online, then guides readers through the most effective methods for using online resources to assist library patrons, including the reference interview, choosing appropriate databases, using controlled vocabulary and Boolean operators, finding effective strategies to refine results, and many other valuable bits of advice and guidance. Added to the second edition are timely topics such as social media, fake news, the use of DOI (digital object identifier) and ORCID (open researcher and contributor ID) to find specific items, and increased coverage of “everything" search systems. The new edition ensures the continued relevance and currency of Markey's outstanding work. (CHOICE)
