  • Using a Search Engine
    by Tony Abrego
    March 2006
    Today we will discuss how to search for things online.

    There are many Search Engines available online. A "search engine" is simply a tool for looking things up on the internet. By putting in a word,or a combination of words, the search engine will give you a list of links that may contain the information you are looking for.

    My favorite is Google because I can find anything I want from there. Here are a few simple steps you can take to get to Google:
    • Connect to the Internet
    • Open the Internet Explorer
    • Go to the address bar and delete what you have in the address bar and replace it with www.google.com
    • Then click go
    • You simply type a word or phrase in the search box search button.

    An even easier way to get there is from the BMI Homepage. The Google Search Box is waiting for you to type in a word or phrase!

    If you type "dictionary", you will get online dictionaries that you can use to find the definition to words. You will also find sites to publishers that publish dictionaries, (online or hardcopy), and you will find sites that you can visit to purchase dictionaries, etc. In other words, the results of your search depend on the words or phrases that you put in. It is best to be specific. For example, if it is "online dictionaries" that you really want, type online dictionaries. This will eliminate the links to all the stuff you did not want!

    Looking for a picture of your favorite celebrity? Simply click on images, from the main Google page, and enter the name of the celebrity you are looking for. You will get fast results!

    Google is really cool, It allows you to search for Images, Groups, News, Local and more. There are many different that you can use, however, so experiment with a few: Searching the Web Have fun!
