Overlooked Google Search Tools and Strategies

This morning I was looking through the blog Free Technology for Teachers, which is a site to share information about free resources that teachers can use in the classroom. Free Technology for Teachers is written by Richard Byrne. When searching through this site for material that could be useful to me I came across the post Frequently Overlooked Google Search Tools and Strategies. This post goes over the advantages and tools that Google has outside of the regular search engine that everyone knows it as. When  reviewing these tools most of them I did not even know about, but if I did they could have been beneficially to me in the past. The tool listed are:

Google Books

Google Scholar

Google Earth

Google Maps

Many other tools and strategies are Control F (Command F), Public Data Explorer, and Image Metadata. More information about these topics can be found at Frequently Overlooked Google Search Tools and Strategies.
