Use of Information Search Techniques and Tools on Web

By Prof. A. B. Bhosle*

A university, a college or an institution of higher learning is rightly described as community where teachers and scholars are the head, students are the body and the library is it’s heart. If the body is to perform its function properly and efficiently its hearth must be well maintained and strong in its functioning.

Researchers are flooded with information from the Internet and sometimes find it difficult to locate the web page providing actually useful information. The WEB will increasingly become a major source of information for agricultural producers, and it will take good skills to locate the information desired. One of the common complaints is the amount of time it takes to utilize the Internet effectively and the lack of depth of information.
