It is highly recommended that you use multiple sources, cross-check data and routinely perform due diligence reviews on sources and publications to which you cite. The Web is a dynamic entity - sites often change URLs, content focus, and ownership. Many sites go offline with little or no notification. This guide is updated regularly in an effort to present resources that have been verified at the time of publication.] Selected Web, Blogs, News, Video Search and Alerts Services Web Search - searching and locating relevant, reliable and actionable information will benefit from actively using a range of search tools, in your research process. A selection of sources from which to choose dependent upon your research requirements, are as follows: bing (http://www.bing.com/) from Microsoft - Search the web, news, images, videos, maps, travel info, history, weather, and more e-commerce related content. The Bing Help (http://onlinehelp.microsoft.com/en- us/bing/ff808535.aspx) directory provides user friendly explanations for features and tools, including the range of email alerts, updates and search options available. Also, users may obtain guides to and explore other search engine features here (http://www.bing.com/explore?FORM=BXFD) . blekko (http://blekko.com/) - With blekko, search is accomplished using a tool to filter results, called slashtags (http://blekko.com/tag/show#directory) . "The new blekko has significant improvements to index quality and relevance. We are also now automatically applying slashtags for over 500 categories. That means users will get the benefit of curated search results (i.e., no spam) for over 500 search categories, regardless of whether or not they manually append a slashtag to their query."
