50 Search Engines You Probably Don't Use Yet

Ms. Freckles: Adorable Ms. Freckles can search online
for different file types, definitions, translations, film, finance
sites, and a lot more all at once.
•   50 Search Engines You Probably Don’t Use Yet - Added by Katie Lepi
•    Students, teachers and the public turn to their librarians for help researching everything from technology to
    genealogy to homework help and lesson plans. Even if your library is equipped with subscriptions and
    memberships to top of the line databases and online journals, you’ve probably had to get creative during a
    patron’s requested search for something unfamiliar.
•   Next time, though, you can turn to one of these 50 search engines, designed to pull from the Web only the
    information you really need.
•   Meta Search and Multi Search Engines
•   These meta search and multi search engines can search numerous engines and sites at once, maximizing the
    number of results you get each time you conduct a search.
•   Ms. Freckles: Adorable Ms. Freckles can search online for different file types, definitions, translations, film,
    finance sites, and a lot more all at once.
•   Kart00: This cartoon-inspired search engine lets you hover over results to get a preview of the site before you
    open it. Results are also organized by topic so that you can narrow down your search and organize hits.
•   Fazzle: Search the web’s best, the entire web, downloads, images, videos, audio or headline news. You can also
    select an advanced search to find incredibly specific results.
•   Trexy: This site saves your search memory so that you don’t have search multiple times on different engines.
•   Mamma: Here at “the mother of all search engines,” librarians search the web or video. Next to your results is an
    option to refine your search by choosing a suggested category.
•   1-Page Multi Search: Type your search into one or several of the following search engines at once: Alta Vista,
    AOL, EntireWeb, Gigablast, Hot Bot, Lycos, Scrub, Yahoo!, Google, YouTube, Dogpile, Ask Jeeves, and a lot
•   iZito: Busy librarians who are constantly finding new reference sites and search engines will like iZito because of
    its ability to save your history in an easy drop down tab.
•   Multimedia and Interactive
•   For help finding pictures, podcasts, music and shareware, use these search engines.
•   Metacafe: Find videos on this site if you want a change from YouTube.
•   Songza: Patrons looking for music can use this search engine, which “lets you listen to any song or band.” You
    can also search the featured list or top played list.
•   Picsearch: This large photo search engine has more than 2 billion images in its directory.
•   Shareware: If you need to install new software programs on your library computers, turn to Shareware first, which
    pulls up tons of free programs and downloads.
•   Curriculum Search: Help teachers find reference materials, lesson plans and tools by searching this Google
    custom search engine.
•   Thinkers: Wisdom: This site features a literary search engine called Wisdom that can search the web, images,
    audio, video, a dictionary and more.

• Why Windows
• Surface will replace
• iPads in schools

                So why the Surface?
•   It is a real 64bit computer. It runs a nippy i5 processor with 4gb Ram
•   It’s 10.6 inches, so looks and feels like a MacBook Air not an iPad
•   It has real ports – microSDXC, USB3.0, Mini Display (HDMI)
•   It has 128gb storage and a respectable 1920 x 1080 display
•   It can be on a workgroup!
•   It can use shared drives, have multiple user accounts and the kind of networking that
    schools like – student drives, teacher drives – the stuff that schools do well now.
•   It has a ‘desktop’ and you can install things or image things – so you can fleet
    manage it without massive changes in work-practice.
•   It plays Minecraft proper. And Steam, and Warcraft … so it’s going to grind though
    anything your school will actually allow to be installed.
•   It has Narrator – which works really well for accessibility.
•   It has Office – get over it, no school is going to give up Word and One Note anytime
    soon, and you can still use Dropbox and Google Apps, so don’t cry just yet.
•   It has front and rear 720p HD cameras – I had it ustreaming and skyping at ver
    respectable quality, mirrored to a projector (standard classroom spec).
•   it supports pen input. I know we all have fingers, but pens have proven popular with
    humans for hundreds of years too.
•   It uses the metro ‘media’ interace for casual browsing and workflows, which feels way
    more fluid than iOS and if you are an Xbox user, you’ll know exactly how the system
    works. OR, press the ‘desktop’ tile and even the most un-interested teacher will
    recognise the familiar computer desktop.
•   The 128gb version has 83gb of storage, which is more than enough for a thousand
    PowerPoints and essays.
•   The one I’ve been testing has managed 6 hours on battery – enough for the school
