Quick Reference Sheets

Introduction

Training programmes run by Reuser’s Information Services aim to teach participants on strategies and methodologies, not simple search tricks. The understanding of ”why” is much more important then “how”, for which RIS offers quick reference sheets.

The reference sheets below list the most important search commands and index fields of some of the more important Internet search engines. All sheets are arranged in Boolean style and give for each command a small explanation and example on how to use.

Please note: the quick reference sheets list things and items that only make sense for former participants to the training. For instance, commands that start with an ampersand (&) go behing the URL, not in the search box. Commands in red are not allowed.

One thought on “Quick Reference Sheets

  1. Thanks for these RIS. Looking forward to joining you all on a Pathfinder course when funds allow. Need to take things to the next level. Your ethos of concentrating on “understanding of ”why” is much more important than “how” makes great sense to me.
