December 12, 7pm General Meeting: "Google Search Techniques", presenter Joel Ewing.  The most common way to search on Google (or other search engines) is to just type in several keywords. or maybe a phrase in quotes.  In many cases that will find what you're after, but sometime more advanced search techniques are required to eliminate items that are not of interest.  Did you know you can also search for images on Google? That can be useful if you have an unidentified picture that looks like it ought to be a well-known site or structure and you want properly label it.  This will be an in-person meeting (with Zoom simulcast) in Room 1001 in the lower level of Highland Crossings Center, 1801 Forest Hills Blvd., Bella Vista, AR.  Links to Google Maps for the location of HCC and for directions inside HCC are located at the bottom of this web page.
