A TechRepublic member recommends "the search engine of the gods"

If you and your users are always looking for yet another great search engine, check out lii.org.


The Web is a big place, and it’s nigh-on impossible to keep up with all of the informative and useful sites that are available. That’s why we encourage TechRepublic members to share their favorite Web sites with us—so we can share them with you. And that’s what TechRepublic member Patrick LeHigh did.

“By librarians, for everyone!”
Patrick’s e-mail was short and sweet: “This is the search engine of the gods: www.lii.org.” I’m one of those people who never settle for searching the Web with just one engine, so I checked out lii.org, and now I’ve added it to my favorites.

As Figure A shows, this site bills itself as the “Librarians’ Index to the Internet.” At this writing, the site included information from 6,400 Internet resources selected and evaluated by librarians. The site has a database of over 1,900 different subject terms and also provides access to a variety of other search engines on its BestSearchTools page. Don’t let the “librarian” label fool you—librarians and non-librarians will find lii.org a useful resource.
