                    Search Engines

A search engine is an online tool that finds Web pages
containing words or phrases that you specify. Put phrases
in quotes such as ―Civil War‖. Since each of the
examples below has unique strengths, it makes sense to
try several. Those marked with an asterick * allow you to
search using multiple search engines simultaneously.
