The web beyond google: Innovative search tools

The web beyond google: Innovative search tools and their implications for reference services

UA School of Library and Information Studies, Gorgas Library, University of Alabama, Box 870266, Tuscaloosa, AL 35487-0266, United States

This article explores Internet search tools that harness emerging technologies and user-centric features such as Web 2.0 sites, mobile applications, metasearching, real-time information, peer-to-peer searches, visual interfaces, and computational abilities. Reference librarians everywhere have incorporated Google into their searching repertoires, but what about other search engines that feature "bleeding edge" technologies and human-friendly designs? Our article is a concise guide to nine innovative search engines-Silobreaker, Zuula, Bing, ChaCha, CompletePlanet, DuckDuckGo, Spezify, Wolfram \Alpha, and Wowd-which give us a glimpse into the future of searching technology. We conclude our article by discussing implications for reference services. © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
