Hello Dear Friends, Collogues and Students,

I am Prijith Jacob Thomas working with Fatima Mata National College, Kollam Kerala India. This presentation was prepared during my services as librarian Mar Athansios College for Advanced Studies Tiruvalla. The purpose of this presentation is purely academic. I happen to go through a Book titled “ Google Secrets by Yvette Davis Published by Wiley India Pvt Ltd. When I went through that document the scope of Google search and services of Google was really amazing. Then I decided to share this information in the form a presentation.
