HST 121: U.S. History Before 1876 (Botker): Google Advanced Search

Using Google Advanced Search allows you to refine a Google Search. Below, I’m going to search for Salem Witch Trials in the section all these words, and I’m going to limit my search to only .edu under site or domain, which means only educational websites. This allows me to look at edu sites, but I still need to evaluate them.


Once I picked a website, I still need to do some investigating to make sure the site is reliable. Below is a site I discovered, now I'm going to look up the author to see if he's credible. 

Who is Douglas O. Linder? I'm going to do a quick Google search to see if I could rely on this website. 

According to a brief search, he is known for the Famous Trials website. If I had more doubts, I would ask a librarian!
