Every year, the search engines introduce new products, redesign their interfaces, change ranking algorithms, and add or remove search features. Some can significantly change search strategies and the type of results found. Keeping up with all the changes is a daily task. This seminar wades through all the news, new products, and changes and then highlights the most significant changes at each engine that effects search.
This program is presented by Greg Notess, Professor and Reference Team Leader, Montana State University and author of SearchEngineShowdown.com. The program will air live, beginning at 1:00 p.m. The meeting rooms will be open from 12:00 - 3:00 to allow time for lunch and discussion. Sodas, water and cookies provided by the chapter. Come early and bring your lunch!
1:00 - 2:30 p.m.
