A detailed introduction to search engines and how to search them effectively.

The Internet is a global collection of networks, both big and small. These networks connect together in many different ways to form the single entity known as the Internet. In fact, the name comes from this idea of Interconnected networks. Since its beginning in 1969, the Internet has grown from four host computer systems to tens of millions.
