    WEB SEARCH

    The world wide web contains millions of pages, and terra-bytes of data. The Google search box can be used to perform keyword searches of the internet in general, or the Louise Brooks Society website in particular. Enter keywords - such as "Pandora's Box," "Cherryvale," or "Lulu" - and press the search button. A list of pages will be displayed, with best matches shown first.

    Google
    Search the web Search Louise Brooks Society

    Also well worth exploring is Google's Advanced Search page. There, individuals can search for pages written in specific languages (such as French, Polish or German), or search for instances of keywords in particular file formats (such as .pdf files). Two other adjunct search engines, Google Print (searches the full text of books) and Google Scholar (searches scholarly papers), will yield additional results. If you search far and wide, you will find that Louise Brooks turns up in some unexpected places.

    Google, it seems, has the most comprehensive and robust search engine. However, other search engines have their supporters. Besides the scope of their indexing, the main difference in the various search engines seems to be in the way each returns search results. Interested individuals might also want to explore "Louise Brooks in Cyberspace" via Yahoo, or Alexa, or Ask Jeeves. It's a big web out there. Happy hunting!
