I'm always impressed lurking around here by the expertise of folks when it comes to finding sources/answers. Obviously, there are a lot of librarians and information specialists whose jobs involve research, but still it's clear many of you are much better than me when it comes to using google. So, how can I better? What google search strategies do you use? What resources would you all recommend?

Needless to say, googling this brings up a lot of hits; hence, I'm hoping for suggestions which ones to start with and where to go from there. Fwiw, as far as my general background: in U.S., college educated, deal mostly with humanities/public affairs topics, fine with basic computer stuff (read a lot on line), use google regularly but intuitively, etc. Thx.
