Search Google Like A Pro (or a reference librarian)

Daniel Russell, a Google employee, gave a talk a couple of weeks ago to a bunch of investigative reporters about how to find information in Google. Many of the tricks he uses are the same ones that our reference staff uses to find information in public search engines. Of course, this doesn't search article/journal databases for more in-depth research (we do that, too!) but it does give you some excellent advice on finding what you need in Google.
