I've just updated my list of search engines (arranged alphabetically) and it's over the 180 mark, closing in on 200. I deleted 31 engines that have gone out of business since I last updated the page in the Autumn of last year, but I added some in as well, so the numbers are staying fairly static. I've given a single line pen picture of each engine, so if you're looking for an alternative to try out, please do give it a whirl.

If we don't expect more of libraries, we're not going to see libraries change. We have to change the frame of mind that libraries belong the directors—they actually belong to the people and they should be serving the people.
Phil asks how we get some communities to participate in managing libraries. Start looking at your library's collection and see if there is at least 1% of the collection in the STEM arena. Should that percent be more? Maybe 5% or 10% more? There is no set answer here, but maybe we need to make a suggestion to our libraries. Maybe instead of just books our funds should go to empower the community more in the technology arena. Maybe we should have co-working space in our library—this can be fee based even—and could be something as low as $30.00/month. That would be a way for libraries to help the unemployed and the community as a whole."
Perhaps you really had to be there to understand what I’m about to relate. I hope not, but it’s quite possible. Imagine a world without the Internet, as so totally strange as that is. Imagine that we had no world-wide graphical user interface to the world of information. Imagine that the most we had were …
