About Find Info Like a Pro, Volume 1: Mining the Internet's Publicly Available Resources for Investigative Research

In addition, a CD-ROM is included, which features clickable links to all of the sites contained in the book.
Praise for Find Info Like a Pro, Volume 1: Mining the Internet's Publicly Available Resources for Investigative Research

"Find Info Like a Pro, Volume 1 is the kind of book I have been looking for to provide clear, easy, and relevant guidance to using the Internet. From Google's "I Feel Lucky" button and tips for Yahoo's name searching to chapters on expert witness qualifications and secrets to using a "paid database" for free--I had regular and frequent "aha!" moments. A CD with relevant websites' addresses and links is included. The CD is worth the price of the book. Find Info Like a Pro gives a clear explanation as to why lawyers need to be more competent using Internet research, and it is exactly what I need and precisely what I want."--Walter Peale, Washington State Bar Association Newsletter

"The book is a particularly useful reference work for lawyers because of its brevity and the way it's organized. Chapters outline a type of Internet-fact research you might find useful in your practice, then list the best websites for that purpose and indicate whether they are free, require registration or are fee-based. Best of all, the book tells you when to use paid sites, and how to get the most for your money when you do."--Laura Calloway, Alabama State Bar Addendum

"I do Internet research on a regular basis, and yet I was blown away by the depth and breadth of valuable information in this thorough and well-organized book. Since we have a law library, only a selected number of books reside in my office--this will be one of them. This is certainly the most valuable book I've acquired this year. Two thumbs up and five stars for this invaluable resource!"--Sharon D. Nelson, author of The 2014 Solo and Small Firm Legal Technology Guide

"Expertly cataloging the vast amount of information available on the internet with insightful commentary and techniques, Find Info Like a Pro, Volume 1 has something for everyone. . . . When I left law firm life as a library director a few years ago, I knew Id miss the terrific resources that the (very) premium research giants, Westlaw and LexisNexis provided, and I did. Find Info Like a Pro eases that loss by providing expert insights into the valuable free resources available on the internet."--Tim Baran, Baran CLE
