General Search Engines
Google is the search engine of choice for most searchers and teachers, linking to more than 8 billion Internet sites.
Teoma specializes in three types of search results, all provided on the same page: Results (traditional listing style); Refine (suggestions to narrow your topic) and Resources (links to expert pages.) The Refine area is a great help in determining effective alternate search words.+
