Assignment #97

Old Reference Librarian Tricks with Google Images

I have found Google Images good for 3 things other than just pictures.

One) Put the name of a country into the Search Bar and you'll get excellent maps - lots of them.

Two) Put the word chart or poster after something like Music or Basketball or Guitar and get really cool stuff.

Three) Put a body part into the Search Bar and you can get photos that might otherwise be interdicted by your particular circumstance. An exception to this is Net Nanny which doesn't like Google Images but doesn't know about Images.

(I once told my Capt. that despite the best efforts of the Air Force I could have a pornographic picture on his computer within 30 seconds.)
