Pause Google: 8 Alternative Search Engines To Find What Google Can't On the information superhighway, we are at the helm of piloting a browser through the lanes and alleys of the web.

With the power of advanced search operators at our command, we can navigate the strands of the web with a bit of Boolean logic. We probably know all the Google search tricks, but there are still things that Google can’t tell us at first glance. Google’s a Hercules, but we shouldn’t be shortsighted not to spot the midgets.

Find - Directory of Open Access Repositories Search or Browse for Repositories <intR>²Dok "Ergani - Historical Archive of Aegean" Repository 100 Useful Tips and Tools to Research the Deep Web By Alisa Miller Experts say that typical search engines like Yahoo! and Google only pick up about 1% of the information available on the Internet. E-resources Most use of digital products including electronic journals, databases, and proprietary Web sites is governed by federal copyright law, state contract law, or licensing agreements. Licensing agreements are generally more restrictive than federal copyright law regarding downloading and fair use. Vendors and publishers of electronic resources have the technological means to monitor, count, control, and deny access if they suspect inappropriate use. Due to licensing restrictions, remote access to licensed electronic resources is limited to students, faculty, and staff at UCLA. It is the responsibility of each user to ensure that his or her use of these products is for non-commercial purposes only. In general, authorized users may access such products for noncommercial educational, scholarly, and research purposes.

Open Data Study – New Technologies Political power, information and rights issues have been energised in the US and UK by the pioneering introduction of open data. Making information about services, education and other data has been made publicly available on the web in both countries to help improve services and contribute to future economic growth. But can this approach be replicated to support progress in middle-income and developing countries? This paper explores the feasibility of applying a similar approach to open data in middle income and developing countries and identifies the factors behind the success in the US and UK and the pivotal strategies adopted in these contexts which helped bring together civil servants and ‘civic hackers’ to release government data. The report finds that 3 key groups or ‘layers’ were crucial to the successful introduction of open data.

DeepDyve Explores The Invisible Web As web search engines have improved over the years, there’s been less attention paid to an “inconvenient truth” about the indexes of our favorite information finding tools—namely, that search engines still miss the lion’s share of information available on the web. This so-called “deep web” remains largely impenetrable to search engines for a variety of reasons, and for many types of queries that’s just fine. But if you’re a serious searcher, looking for the best information possible, you can’t afford to overlook this vast “hidden” store of information. And that’s a challenge, because search tools that probe the deep web are for the most part either obscure or fee-based. That’s changing, thanks to a company formerly known as Infovell and now called DeepDyve. DeepDyve’s approach is like no other I’ve seen.
