Five Search Engines You Can Use to Search the Deep Web

Five Search Engines You Can Use to Search the Deep Web | Teaching through Libraries | Scoop.it

Unlike pages on the visible Web (that is, the Web that you can access from search engines and directories), information in the Deep Web is just not visible to the software spiders and crawlers that create search engine indexes. Since this information makes up the vast majority of available content on the Web, we are potentially missing out on some pretty amazing resources.
