SEARCH ENGINES

What's the difference?
  • No two search engines retrieve the same results
  • Each search engine searches different parts of the web (usenet groups, images, ftp sites, etc.)
  • Each search engine is updated at different times
  • Each search engine uses different criteria to organize your search results

General Search Engines
retrieve webpages on all different topics and list every webpage they find without regard to quality

Academic Search Engines
retrieve webpages that have been judged to have high-quality information relevant to students, faculty, and other researchers

Meta Search Engines
search several other search engines at one time and show you the top results from each

Special Search Tools
Image, audio, people, news, and translation search engines

Deep Web Search Engines
retrieve webpages that aren't searchable by general search engines

Search Engine Tips
Comparison Charts, tutorials, latest news, etc.
