The Cybersleuth’s Guide to the Internet

By Carole A. Levitt and Mark E. Rosch

Price: $64.95

By Carole A. Levitt and Mark E. Rosch. Much of the information that was once only available to professional researchers from expensive, fee-based sources is now available for free on the Internet, if you know how to find it. There’s more to conducting a comprehensive search for information on the Internet than just relying on the results returned by search engines, though. The Cybersleuth’s Guide to the Internet will show you how to be your own cyber-detective and unearth this information FREE (or at low cost!) on the Web.

The new 12th edition contains more than 100 pages than past editions, including information on:

  • New and changed Google search options
  • Navigating the Internet Archive interface
  • Discussion of Fastcase and Justia free case summaries
  • Changes to the accessibility of federal government documents

Plus, an updated Search Engine Features Comparison Chart and a revised lists of databases, such as LocatePLUS, and TLO.
