Search engines are automated programs (sometimes called spiders
or bots) that crawl through the Web and index the pages they find, creating
a database that they use to match your search terms.
- AllTheWeb AlltheWeb combines one of the largest and freshest indices with the most powerful search features that allow anyone to find anything faster than with any other search engine.

- Mamma A globally popular meta-search engine, Mamma.com brings forth refined search results from the web’s top search engines; assisting users to efficiently find the information they seek online.

Search across many disciplines and sources: peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, abstracts and articles, from academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories, universities and other scholarly organizations.
