Better Images, Better Searchers: Google Images and Visual Literacy in the Sciences and Social Sciences by Melanie Maksin and Kayleigh Bohémier

This chapter describes our instruction efforts concerning Google Images, a specialized search engine. We were inspired to teach Google Images to an academic audience by our experiences in the Power Searching with Google MOOC, Google’s effort to improve searchers’ understanding of their platform’s capabilities, and by our academic community’s interest in finding images for coursework, presentations, publications, and other scholarly activities.
