Class 12 Exercises:
#bit330 Google Scholar: 5: True to Google form, it has a lot of filtering functions. Wish it offered some help in refining search query.
#bit330 Scirus: 7: Like the ability to easily filter from left bar though wish I could choose my own journals and separate by category like Google Scholar.
#bit330 IncyWincy: 6: Thought the category breakdown didn’t make a lot of sense for all searches. There’s a lot of ad space -.-‘’
#bit330 DeepDyve: 9: Unique function such as “more like this” and ability to save returns - like the option of viewing “details” within site
#bit330 UM Lib: 7: good for UM students.. I thought we were in the process of scanning books as well, wish it gave excerpts.
#bit330 Google Books: 6: Despite copyright issues, it’s a very useful tools for getting excerpts from books
#bit330 Amazon Adv: 5: More useful for someone who knows what they want to buy and want read reactions from readers; not good for info search
#bit330 WorldCat: 8: good refined search functions – by year, format, etc. Will tell you where nearest copy is available.
#bit330 biznar: 6: like the limit to functions that allowed to narrow down by specific websites, don’t know what all of them are though haha, left bar is confusing
#bit330 bnet: 4: usually love bnet for management articles, but returned surprisingly few results on my project topic.. now it’s not even loading

Google doesn’t go to those data
Deep Web Search Engine
