Robin Good: Curation is often about searching, exploring and digging through tons of materials to find a perfect match, a complementary resource, a citation or quote that can help add more value and meaning to your "collection" or to your curated content.
Yet, many curators have not yet explored and mastered the tools available to them to make their search efforts even more effective.
Thanks to Nancy Blachman and Jerry Peek who have put together a very useful guide to Google Search Operators.
Not that you can't find these on Google's own help pages (http://support.google.com/websearch/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=136861 ), but there is more information in this guide that can be quite useful including the syntax, the capabilities, and an example for each operator.
Very useful. 9/10
