 If you sometimes feel that the search results from Google aren't terrific, you might want to try using search engines that are specially designed for education.  SweetSearch is my new favorite!  You will find the list below on the Denfeld Media Center web page>Search Engines.

Great Search Engines You Should Try:

Sweet Search
Searches only the sites that have been reviewed and approved by a team of librarians, teachers, and research experts
Google Scholar
A search engine designed to search scholarly journals
iSEEK Education

IPL2 (The Librarian's Internet)
