10 Free Tools for Everyday Research - Getting Smart by Susan Oxnevad - @soxnevad

10 Free Tools for Everyday Research - Getting Smart by Susan Oxnevad - @soxnevad | Search Engines for Students | Scoop.it
Why do so many students choose Wikipedia when asked to find information on the Internet? I believe the answer is that Wikipedia is like the McDonalds of the Internet, you can always find it and you know what you’re going to get.

Check out the 10 free tools, including Google Search Education, Google Custom Search, the Find Tool, a variety of search engines (although I would also include Carrot2 at http://search.carrot2.org/stable/search) and more!
