For quite a long time I’ve been meaning to attend one of RBA Information Services‘s business information searching courses which cover the nuances of Google and so much more beyond that. Last Thursday I finally did.
For a start, it was a very useful benchmarking excercise-cum-sanity check to see how much I already knew and an opportunity to hone my search techniques further.
However, I can’t know everything about search, it’s a fast-moving world and this course was a source for new ideas, new sources and sites and offered different ways to search, techniques and tips. There was also plenty of time for discussion.
In short, it was a wonderful indulgence to be able to wallow in all things “searchy” for a whole day. It helped to pull me out of those searching-ruts that we fall into and refreshed and revitalised both the exploratory and specific nature of my searching.
How could your searching ever be disruptive otherwise? Highly recommended – thank you, Karen!
