In addition to a bunch of new fonts and templates, Google Docs just added a convenient Research Tool that automatically appears on the right side of your document and toggles off and on. (If it doesn’t immediately show up, go to the pull-down menu under Tools.)
The search bar offers web results, images, quotations, maps, reviews, and more. Back and forward arrows allow users to navigate search results.
Images and links appearing in the search box can be immediately inserted into the document with simple formatting options.
Images appear in the general search, but users may select an image-only search using the drop-down menu. Under Settings, searchers can specify usage rights for images. A Quote search may be also be selected in the pull-down menu. This may be particularly useful for writers.
Users may select Cite to create a footnote citation of a web result within the body of the document.
