Over the past dozen years, the switch from paper to electronic sources of information has been all encompassing. How can technology support the efforts of scholars to find and evaluate information? General-purpose search engines use an obscure mix of advanced algorithms to index, search, match, and rank results. Metasearch software extends the reach of ordinary searches. Web directories aid searching by grouping topics, lists, and indices. But for all the information readily accessible on the Web, much more is locked up in databases only available to paying customers. Scholarly research today begins with the Web but quickly branches into wider and deeper domains of information.
