Alissa Miller has produced an impressive list of deep web-related resources for the Online College Blog. I’m particularly impressed at how much time Alissa must have spent researching resources for the list.
The list is divided into nine sections:
- Meta-Search Engines
- Semantic Search Tools and Databases
- General Search Engines and Databases
- Academic Search Engines and Databases
- Scientific Search Engines and Databases
- Custom Search Engines
- Collaborative Information and Databases
- Tips and Strategies
- Helpful Articles and Resources for Deep Searching
I’ve heard of many of the resources, but many were also new to me.
Given my interest in scientific search engines, I was delighted to see ten of them on Alissa’s list.
The “Tips and Strategies” section is helpful to young researchers just getting into search. In that section there are also a few links to helpful sites, e.g. Internet search guides, and government databases.
The “Helpful Articles and Resources for Deep Searching” section lists ten high quality deep web resources. I highly recommend that anyone wanting to get a foundation in what the deep web is all about check out the sites in this section.
Nice job, Alissa. I like your guide. You did, however, omit one useful resource, this blog!
