Hock, Randolph. The Extreme Searcher's Internet Handbook: A Guide for the Serious Searcher. 3rd ed. Medford, NJ: CyberAge Books, 2010. ISBN: 978-0-910965-84-2

Did you start your library career before the days of the Internet?
Are you a good Internet searcher looking to improve your strategies?
Do you have trouble finding images online? Videos? Podcasts? Info on the deep web?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, this book -- parts or in its entirety -- should be useful.

>From the publisher:
The Extreme Searcher's Internet Handbook is the essential guide for anyone who uses the internet for research—librarians, teachers, students, writers, business professionals, and others who need to search the web proficiently. In this fully updated third edition, award-winning writer and internet trainer Ran Hock covers strategies and tools (including search engines, portals, and social networks) for all major areas of internet content. Readers with little to moderate searching experience will appreciate Hock's helpful, easy-to-follow advice, while experienced searchers will discover a wealth of new ideas, techniques, and resources. Anyone who teaches the internet will find this book indispensable. Supported by the author's web page.

Library Journal: “[Hock's] clear and useful guide will help anyone interested in going beyond Google, explaining when, why, and how best to use various search tools and other web resources.”

Choice: "The author retains his clear writing style, nice glossary, and handy surfing tips. ... should be required reading for librarians, online professionals, and anyone else who wants to get the most out of the internet. Recommended."
