7 Academic Search Engines Not Named Google

7 Academic Search Engines Not Named Google | 21st century students skills | Scoop.it

"When we search, we often first reach for Google–and rightfully so.

But by using Google students and teachers are unwittingly bending to the will of webmasters who are experts at SEO (search engine optimization), which can mean that you find what they want you to find rather than what you really need. So what to do?

Thankfully, there are options for 21st century learners..."

To Google or not to Google...that is the question. I fall on the side of teaching students how to use other search engines for a number of reasons including tracking and filter bubbles. This post explores seven academic search engines. 
A short description of each search engine is provided as well as links to each. There is also a link to an earlier post that looked at 100 databases and search indexes.

This is a great infographic for showing the thought process of finding information.

Terry Yelmene's curator insight, August 16, 2015 11:50 AM

A pretty well-reasoned, fundamental thought process for most knowledge work research.  This serves as an even better backward (there-to-here) model to guide the core research workflow process automation  a knowledge worker may want to devise, install.  Think work product-informed -> DevonThink structures -> DevonAgent w/'Active Filtered' automated searches.  The most important drivers here are - 'ethical' - (more than just multiple sources, a stage needs to be added at the work product stage to provide authenticity) and - 'bias' -  (a post automated search,  subsequent manual search for corroborating items selection to provide authority).

I know this is a little simplistic, but I thought this flowchart from the fine folks at EasyBib was a fantastic way to drive home to students that more often than not they need to cite their sources.

Paragráfe, citação, referência bibliográfica não são plágio!

There's no need to plagiarism... just quote properly!

Sandra Carswell's curator insight, July 24, 2013 4:39 PM

Yes, simple to us, but to our kids? Probably not. Nice to have a visual for them to see just when they need to cite and add a bibliography.

I would like to add to Beth Dicther's share, via Richard Byrne's Free Technology 4 Teachers, that website evaluation skills should be a necessity for any student and educator regardless of online or face-to-face.
