More than 150 Web Searchers Gather to Update Their Search Skills

June 2, 2004, Medford, New Jersey—On May 11–12, 2004, the Hilton New York in Downtown Manhattan played host to more than 150 searchers attending the popular WebSearch University conference. Organized by Information Today, Inc., WebSearch two-day educational event attended by search professionals and others who want to stay on top of the latest skills and strategies for using the Web for research.

WebSearch University is unique in its expert faculty, all of whom are widely recognized as the top names in searching and Web search engines: Mary Ellen Bates, Tara Calishain, Greg Notess, Marydee Ojala, Gary Price, and Genie Tyburski. Attendees benefited from their expertise and practical tips, getting breaking information about new Web search developments and advice about strategies, search tools, and resources. The faculty was available during breaks and between sessions, answering many one-on-one questions rom attendees.

Of special interest at this spring's event was the session on searching blogs and newsgroups by Greg Notess, and Tara Calishain's discussion of when not to use Google for your web searches. Gary Price wrapped up the conference with his popular and fast-paced "Price's Pearls" coverage of dozens of web resources.

Sponsors for WebSearch University, Factiva and NetSnippets, present in-depth tutorials during the conference, and also hosted tabletops in the WebSearch Showcase.
