August Webinar

August, 2014
The Hidden Web: Digging Deeper
  • Presenter: Cyndi IngleCyndi Ingle
  • Date:  Tuesday, August 19, 2014   
  • Time:  7:00 PM CDT
  • Webinar Description:  When Google and traditional search engines don't return useful information, don't stop there. We will explore resources that are invisible to Google and hidden deep within web sites and proprietary databases. The "hidden web" lies buried within the collections for commercial web sites, libraries, archives, and museums. We will also talk about the importance of indexes that deep-link into web sites online, thus uncovering hidden gems of information that may not be found easily through a search engine query.
