How to choose a search engine or directory

Wednesday 11 February 2004

Challenging the conventional wisdom that Google has solved all the search problems, the librarians at the University at Albany (SUNY) have compiled an extensive table showing How to Choose a Search Engine or Directory. There really are quite a few other engines out there, many of them aggregators from the more established sites, but with plenty of interesting features to exploit. Well worth taking a look around.

Good resource.

By the way, the school isn't University of Albany. The logo says University at Albany but locals used to call the school SUNY Albany.
