Search Engines & Web Directories

Search Engines index the contents of Web pages, so use them to find specific words and phrases. Web Directories organize Web pages into structured categories, so use these when searching for broad topics. Academic Web Directories carefully select the Web pages they choose to include. This produces smaller, but higher quality, results than regular Web Directories.
