Searching the invisible web (deep web, hidden web): WebLens search portal
Custom Search Locate deepweb resources by adding the word database to a regular search engine query. The terms invisible web, hidden web, and deep web all refer to the same thing: a massive storehouse of online data that regular search engines don't capture. That's because terabytes of information are buried in databases and other research resources. Searchable and accessible online but often ignored by conventional search engines, these resources exist by the thousands. Known in research circles as the deep web, invisible web, or hidden web, this buried content is an estimated 500 times larger than the surface Web, which is estimated at over eight billion pages.

Structured vs. Unstructured data With respect to the mass categorization that is central to most computer operations, there are two types of relevant data which affect speed of assimilation as well as information recall: structured data and unstructured data. Structured vs. Unstructured For the most part, structured data refers to information with a high degree of organization, such that inclusion in a relational database is seamless and readily searchable by simple, straightforward search engine algorithms or other search operations; whereas unstructured data is essentially the opposite.

Invisible Web Directory - Search The Invisible Web With A Web Directory Question: How big is the Invisible Web? The Hidden Web, aka the Invisible Web, aka the Invisible Web, is the part of the Web that can't be easily accessed with a simple search engine query. How big, exactly, is the Invisible Web? 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.

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.
