Dan Russell, Google’s own guru of “user happiness,” has been leading search workshops here at Maryland for years. He maintains a blog with periodic search challenges called Search/Research. He also has a free online course, Power Searching with Google. And now he is coming here to talk about the book he has just written with his best tips — including step-by-step examples — that can improve your search skills and enhance your critical thinking about the search process.
This program has been organized by the University of Maryland’s Future of Information Alliance and the University of Maryland Libraries. Sponsors for FIA progams in 2019-2020 include the following:

The Andrew and Julie Klingenstein Family Fund
