May 13th Meeting - "Exploring the Current Web Toolbox: Practical Super Searcher Tips & Techniques."

The next meeting of the CJRLC Technology Group will take place on Tuesday, May 13, 2008 at the Lawrenceville campus of Rider University. The meeting will run from 3:30 to 5:00 PM.

Our meeting will feature a presentation by Robert Lackie of Rider University entitled "Exploring the Web Search Toolbox: Practical Super Searcher Tips & Techniques". This presentation is a special condensed version of Robert's day-long workshop of the same name that is designed to help you make more effective web searches. Robert will also update us on newly discovered sources since his presentation at our May meeting last year. So, if you ever wanted to identify the best search engines to use for your information searches or get some pointers on more sophisticated web search techniques, you will enjoy Robert's presentation.

As with our previous meetings, new members are welcome and encouraged to attend. Don't forget to bring your new tech ideas, discoveries and tips to share with other group members in our New & Noteworthy Technology section!

Directions to the Lawrenceville campus of Rider University can be found here.

This is our last Tech Group meeting for the year. We appreciate your support and hope that you had fun at our meetings this year. Stay tuned during the summer for an announcement about our 2008/2009 meeting schedule!

Hope to see you at Rider on May 13th!
