Google Advanced Search Update

Connector

As reported on LifeHacker.com, Google’s Advanced Search page now uses Javascript to reconstruct each search query to include Boolean operators, on the fly.  Basically you enter items into each text box and the search string is dynamically created before you start looking at results. You can also exclude terms in a similar fashion.

This may be a good time for us (librarians) to harness the way Google is making their searching easier, in order to better explain proper searching techniques using Boolean operators.
