      • By: Megan Biggi
    • II. How Do They Work
      • A . Intro

        • 1. Use metasearchers when you are in a hurry. Metasearch engines are useful and get you a quick overview on a subject and/or term.
        • 2. Use metasearchers when you are looking up simple searches and also when you are not having any luck pulling up documents in your search.
