    I choose to do the Google Search Tips and Tricks lesson and also the lesson Clean up and Organize my Gmail. Both were very informative. Google was a bit easier since I use that everyday with patrons however refining the search terms to do a more in depth search to find what the patron is needing will help and also specialized siste search will help when helping a patron. I am happy that I found time to clean up my Gmail as it has needed it since I started using Gmail. Lots of neat tricks in that lesson such as color coding your files.

    I also chose the Google Search Tips and Tricks. The quotes, minus, and asterisk will be helpful in narrowing down searches. I wasn’t aware of the advanced search until this lesson. The older newspaper articles will also be helpful when searching geneology. But, for some reason I couldn’t get short videos to run. And, I’m not sure what I might have done wrong at the end, but it looked like I didn’t get any points in the timed practice search. Also, I don’t play computer games so the games on Google didn’t interest me.
