Google Web Search

Google can be used in information retrieval. Google is a good instrument in quick information retrieval, in checking matters and in everyday information searching and when you want to get the idea of some new matter to you. Do not leave information retrieval on the Google or merely on other search engines. It is good to keep in mind the source criticism in Google search.

You can use also Google Scholar, which searches for scientific material.
