SEARCH MILL: Full Bandwidth Search
SO MANY SEARCH ENGINES: SO LITTLE TIME
"Full Bandwidth Search" means that you go from defining your topic to the final acquisition of details. This is not just keying in some search term in a Google search bar, although it's still good to have the Gogle bar handy for quickie jobs. This is a start-from-scratch operation the way the pros do it. You define, select, control and implement every stage of the search. You select a search engine to find the search engine that best suits your needs based on the topic that you select. That can be a single search egine, a meta-search engine, a specialized search engine, an advanced search engine that lets you narrow-parameter your search, a directory or a list of any or all of these. A "Search Mill" is a resource that enables you to conduct a Full Bandwidth Search. It's like being dropped into the Brown University Science Library. In the case of the Space Patrol Search Mill you may be able to get at up to 5,000 search engines and directories. I did not have time to count them all. (MORE)
