Search engine

Just like most people when I want to find anything on the internet I turn to Google.  For our research topic Google worked great. . . .for internet sources. For more of a professional look at Social Media Breaking News, I found that both the City Tech Library and the Brooklyn College Library worked much better.  When I typed “”Social Media” breaking news” into a Google search not much of anything was useful.  On the other hand when I typed it into the library data bases of both schools I received many more writing I can use. A strange thing was that when the same words were typed in the two schools databases many of the results were different, or in different order.Also the ability to narrow my results helped me find what i was looking for. This is not completely throwing Google away. I also gave Google Scholar a try and it worked reasonably well.
