When searching for government related information, many people rely on Google Government to help narrow their results. This is a great method to eliminate commercial sites. However, a query from this search engine can produce both Federal and State sites. This can be frustrating, however, if the objective is to locate information from just one State.
One way to alleviate this problem is to utilize the Google Government State Filter found on ResearchBuzz. This tool, created by Tara Calishain, allows the searcher to select and then search just the state of interest. If you are not familiar with ResearchBuzz, you might want to take a peek. It provides news and helpful hints about search engines and the Internet.
