I did a search using the cuny+ catalog as well as a regular internet search using Google. The words I used to search were “the risks of social networking” and “social networking”. While searching both, I find that both had similarities in finding articles. Also the information was very similar, the ways of searching were different. In the Cuny+ catalog you have to careful on what keywords you type and you can’t type in more than one or 2. When I typed in the risks of social networking I didn’t get any results but when I typed in “Social networking” I got relevant results. When I typed in “the risks of social networking “in Google search, I got useful results that worked with my topic. But when I typed in only “social networking” in Google I got thousands of results most of which were un-useful. With Google, you can type as many phrases as you need to find your information but with Cuny+ you have to limit your words and narrow it down.
