Google and Bing dominate the search engine marketplace, but they are not the only – and in some cases not the best – research tools available. We will examine the range of Internet search tools that are available with an emphasis on those that will best serve those in education. Unique engines such at Touch Graph, Exalead, RaRoi, Blinkx, Wolfram Alpha, Internet Archive, Hakia, WhoZat, and the Good Search Engine may not be household terms, but these and others have unique, useful qualities for those searching the Web.

Upon successful completion of the workshop, you will be able to:

  • Identify alternative search tools
  • Analyze the strengths and potentials of various alternative search engines in order to select the right search engine for your specific needs
