Lesson: 04 Web Search Part 3
Sometimes the most pertinent information in a given search can only be found by searching indirectly for that information. For example, information about public health standards is easier to find by searching for public health organizations, rather than by searching for the standards themselves. This 'hidden' information is called the "Deep Web," and is an important part of any advanced search strategy. This lesson will give students both the tools and the conceptual understanding necessary to begin to access deeper information.
