• What is the Internet & what isn’t it?

It is a standardized global system of interconnected computer networks that connects millions of people; not all networks connected

The Internet is not the final answer; some things just aren’t there

• Are search engines always the best answer to a problem?

Specialized/vernacular web directories may be the fastest way to research some subject; librarians are often the best answer

• Can these techniques be used elsewhere?

Appliances, or ports of search engines to private networks, will sometimes lack features or behave differently

Other search engines may have slightly different syntax, check help pages
