We know scientists are always known as fashion trend setters but what gives
with the confusing layout of this site that requires a Ph.D to navigate.
To find great content on this site click on the MadSci archives and then the

Overall a fun site for scientists young and old which includes a
comprehensive directory of basic science reference sites.

Automatically creates searches of the literature. Promising research tool.
- Find a trail map for any ski area whether
you're headed for the hills of Connecticut, or mountains in Europe. You can
even view maps of ski areas in the Near East, Middle East and Australia.
Includes a directory of ski areas too.
- Guide to the search engines. Includes a
sampling of topic specific search engines. When you click through to a topic
area you'll find one of over a hundred helpful search guides included. For
example in sports was a guide on how to find stats on team players. A well
done site, just lacking in the quantity of sites (the sports section of the
directory only had 4 out of the hundreds of worthwhile sports search sites).
On the other hand, the handful of general use search engines does include
more detailed information than you'll ever need.

- Find and watch video clips. MTV, movies and
sports includes. Requires registration and broadband access. While the
selection of clips is limited this site is way to much fun and we strongly
advise you don't open it up at work or you'll never get anything done.
- Subscription-based research service that
provides undergraduate college students access to the full text of tens of
thousands of scholarly liberal arts books and journal articles. Is it worth
the money? Free trial offer provided so you can decide.
- Search the two largest databases (FAST and
Google) with this average performing metasearch engine. Results were average
in relevancy. When you search, Infonetware generates a set of related
keywords in the left hand navigation bar in addition to the more typical
results. The idea here is to blend the benefits of searching and browsing.
We liked the concept but found that use of the browse links brought up
results of similar average quality to searching. Either way we found
numerous redundant listings on the results pages. Worth a look.
- Ignite your browser with this fast UK based
metasearch tool. Searches Google, Altavista, Hotbot and Goto.com with
average results. We liked the speed, though the site is lacking in
