[http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-P0vstL8LdwE/Up5oM5X0B-I/AAAAAAAAAKM/B41leshAWTs/s200/googlesearchsecrets.jpg]<http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-P0vstL8LdwE/Up5oM5X0B-I/AAAAAAAAAKM/B41leshAWTs/s1600/googlesearchsecrets.jpg>Google can be an incredibly powerful tool for research, but the top-of-the-page results are seldom the most beneficial to library users and students, and many of the search engine's most useful features are hidden behind its famously simple interface. Burns and Sauers reveal the secrets of effective Google searches in this invaluable resource showing how to get the most out of the service, with:

  *   An overview of all the tool's search services, including Image, Maps, News, Blogs, Discussions, Scholar, Patents, and Books
  *   Ready-to-use instructions on how to go beyond the simple search box and top results to get library users the answers they need, fast
  *   Straightforward guidance on using filters to refine search results, with examples of common searches like images with Creative Commons licenses, news searches set for a date range or into an archive, and videos with closed captioning
  *   An explanation of the bibliography manager feature of Google Scholar, which allows students and researchers to build bibliographies with ease
  *   Tips for configuring Safe Search on workstations in children's departments and schools
Copious screenshots walk readers through each topic step by step, making this a true how-to guide for everyone who uses Google.

Krier, Laura and Carly A. Strasser. Data management for libraries: A LITA Guide. Chicago: ALA TechSource, an imprint of the American Library Association, 2014. ISBN: 978-1-55570-969-3

>From the publisher:
[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-aMj93vWap5Q/Up5jF9p12CI/AAAAAAAAAJ8/cPzYVVtlDfs/s200/datamanagement.jpg]<http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-aMj93vWap5Q/Up5jF9p12CI/AAAAAAAAAJ8/cPzYVVtlDfs/s1600/datamanagement.jpg>Since the National Science Foundation joined the National Institutes of Health in requiring that grant proposals include a data management plan, academic librarians have been inundated with related requests from faculty and campus-based grant consulting offices. Data management is a new service area for many library staff, requiring careful planning and implementation. This guide offers a start-to-finish primer on understanding, building, and maintaining a data management service, showing another way the academic library can be invaluable to researchers. Krier and Strasser of the California Digital Library guide readers through every step of a data management plan by:

  *   Offering convincing arguments to persuade researchers to create a data management plan, with advice on collaborating with them
  *   Laying out all the foundations of starting a service, complete with sample data librarian job descriptions and data management plans
  *   Providing tips for conducting successful data management interviews
  *   Leading readers through making decisions about repositories and other infrastructure
  *   Addressing sensitive questions such as ownership, intellectual property, sharing and access, metadata, and preservation
This LITA guide will help academic librarians work with researchers, faculty, and other stakeholders to effectively organize, preserve, and provide access to research data.
