Welcome to some mildly disruptive searching. I don’t aspire to turn the world of search on its head (although that would be fun), but instead hope to highlight some of the numerous free specialist search engines out there which can give you a well-earned rest from “Googling”. Is this in the OED as an official verb yet? Not that I’ve anything against Google! It is still my engine of choice when carrying out general searches or looking for a starting point. But, as my profession is keen to point out, it is not the be-all and end-all of searching.
I hope that this will become clear as the blog develops and I look forward to the content being enriched by the views of people other than me! There’s more background on this blog and me in “About”
