Abstract [en]

This book is about news search, blog search and news monitoring. Aimed at professionals with a strategic need of monitoring the surrounding world and users with a need to find the best news sources, monitoring services and news search strategies and techniques. The main purpose is to present a practical handbook with an analysis of readily available tools, blending with passages of a more theoretical nature. It is also useful for students at LIS programmes and related information programmes and for librarians and information professionals. The authors aim to aid the reader in reaching a greater understanding of the core in news search, blog search and news monitoring.

The book presents methods to evaluate news search engines and databases and to harness the power of RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds in online news search and monitoring. It is also for those who want to learn how to navigate and also question the news found in the blogosphere. Additionally it highlights the power of discovering news, as it happens, through social networks. It offers a detailed guide to free news search engines, blog search engines, commercial news databases and news monitoring services. Different news sources are covered such as newspapers, news agencies, broadcast news, press releases, wires and media sites. Advanced search techniques are described and the use of and benefits of these are analyzed and discussed.
