Research beyond Google

Research Beyond Google: 119 Authoritative, Invisible, and Comprehensive Resources is a collection of deep web resources that go beyond the surface web results found on Google. Google, currently the largest search engine has approx 50 billion web pages indexed, but it can only index the visible web, aka the searchable web. But the invisible web (or deep web) is estimated to be 500 times bigger than the searchable web and consists of atabases and results of specialty search engines that the more popular search engines are unable to index. Compiled by the OEDB, some of these listed research resources may be familiar already via the DIT Library website, but have a look and see what else might work for you.
