Welcome to our free tool guide, designed to accompany our book, whose cover you see here. For more details about this book, refer to SearchHelpCenter.com.

Consider this guide as a starting point in your search, intended to get you going in the right direction to point you toward the most important references and/or provide you with sample websites.

How to get started? Find your desired information listed alphabetically on the left navigation bar. Then click on the appropriate links.

What's a search tool? It's any mechanism or computer program that helps you locate information on the Web, such as a search engine, a meta search engine, a directory of other search tools, or even individual websites providing search end results and having their own rich internal search abilities.

What's a search tool guide? It's a multi-level, categorized list of different types of search tools. Working from the highest level kind of search tool guide down, a search tool guide can include links to:

Note that Copernic's lists of specific search tools in each category are available in our Search Tool Guide, by clicking on the various category names/descriptions for these particular search tools. Other meta search tools that classify and make explicit the search tools they source may in future be added to our Search Tool Guide.

  • Specialized, deep and surface web search engines and directories, including library gateways, subject-specific databases, vearch engines: e.g.:
  • All-in-one search guides, which allow you to directly enter your search using any one (but not more than one at a time) of a categorized list of more specific search tools: e.g.:

Is our search tool guide the only one presently around? No, there are others, although each works in a different way. Ours is a "high-level" search tool guide, since it references sites that specialize in discussing, categorizing, and advising on search engines or tools, including other search tool guides. In that respect, our guide may make a bigger attempt than others to cross-reference other search tool guides. That's because this guide is here to serve you by providing you with as many choices as possible beyond our own guide. At the same time, we hope to benefit by encouraging you to consider buying our book.

What else may be unique in our search tool guide? It also categorizes search tools by factors other than subject or audience, such as by search tool ability, type (e.g., directory, meta, mainstream), and level (degree of generality).
