Is Google the best resource site for outdoor educators and trainers?
Google Scholar is a great resource for finding academic articles and books. I recommend choosing 'Advanced Scholar Search' (and 'Advanced Search Tips') to make your search as specific as you can. For example, choosing the final option (Social Sciences, Arts, and Humanities) saves you from getting lots of irrelevant results. Depending on your enquiry, you may also want to select 'Environmental Sciences' or 'Business'.
Better than Google for 'outdoor' searches?
