SEARCH TIPS:

Search Engines allow users to search the Internet using specific words (keywords) and phrases. Use this type of search for very specific or unique information.

Filtered Search Engines & Directories are “kid-friendly” sites and only allow access to websites that are appropriate for children.

Subject Directories allow the users to search for websites located within the directory. Websites are arranged by topics and subtopics. Use this type of search for information that neatly fits into broad categories like Art, Science, Animals, Travel, etc.

Meta-Search Engines search similarly to regular search engines, but allow the user to search both search engines and directories at the same time.
