10 Websites To Download Older Versions Of Software

10 Websites To Download Older Versions Of Software | Websites I Found So You Don't Need To | Scoop.it

 The old always gives way to the new. This fact is true of life. It's even truer when it comes to software.  When it comes to technology, the speed of change is so rapid that we don’t really miss the older versions. Perhaps, with applications like operating systems and Office suites, we do fall into habits that sometimes are difficult to give up. But the changeover to the newer version of the tools is just a matter of time.   But just sometimes the older version software comes back into the scheme of things.

10 Great Academic Search Engines for Research Students

10 Great Academic Search Engines for Research Students | Websites I Found So You Don't Need To | Scoop.it
Niche-specific content is usually not readily available through regular generic search engines. One example is the academic and scholarly content. While running a  search query about an academic topic through a generic search engine such as  Google would probably render fairly decent results, it, however, usually takes digging into so much fluff before finally landing on relevant results. This is where having access to topic-specific search engines comes in handy. Such search engines do not only provide specific content tailored to the topic under study but their content is more likely to be reliable and authoritative. To this end, we have compiled this list of excellent academic search engines that teachers, student researchers and academics can use to quickly locate and access scholarly works and publications. We have only included what we believe are the most relevant and popular titles out there. If you have other suggestions to add to the list please share with us on our Facebook page. Enjoy
