Suggestions for more effective web searching

Many fantastic public policy resources--in particular, policy briefs from think tanks, NGOs, and research institutes--can be found online. Here are a few tips for more efficient, effective Google searches:

Include policy in your search 

do a site: search which limits the search to a specific domain. try:   .org sites, .edu sites, .gov sites

or you may access a certain website for example:  http://nzinitiative.org.nz/

If you're not sure which think tank, NGO, or agency might have issued policy papers on your topic, try a search engine that's powered by Google but limited to a select group of sites.
