Did you know these Google Hints?

Google Hints

  •  Did you know that searches are not case sensitive? No need to correct your input.
  • If you put define: in front of a word into the Google Search, you’ll get that word’s definition.
  • For students. You can find a lot of textbooks on Google if you enter their title, then the desired file type. So an example would look like this: Book Title filetype:PDF
  •  Put quotation marks around words "[any word]" to search for an exact phrase in an exact order. Keep in mind that searching with quotes might exclude relevant results. For instance, a search for "Alexander Bell" will miss pages that refer to Alexander G. Bell.
