Metasearch Engines

 

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?

Subject directories are selective and usually  well-organized.  Search engines are larger and more comprehensive.  Metasearch engines return a small percentage of results found in multiple search engines.

For an in-depth introduction to searching on the Internet, see UC Berkeley's Finding Information on the Internet: A Tutorial.

SEARCH HINT:

To search for a phrase in most search engines, type phrase in "quotation marks."
