You are here

There's a nifty new site you should check out called A9.com, brought to you by Amazon.com. What is it? Well:

The web is easy to use, but using it well is not easy. We are inventing new ways to take search one step farther and make it more effective. We provide a unique set of powerful features to find information, organize it, and remember it—all in one place. A9.com is a powerful search engine, using web search and image search results enhanced by Google, Search Inside the Book® results from Amazon.com, reference results from GuruNet, movies results from IMDb, and more.

The first time you visit, you'll need to sign in to get the full benefits (if you already have an Amazon.com account, you're good to go). So say you are looking for information on birkenstocks. You enter the search, and you get results that include acual stores that sell them, reference links to info about birks, and images from the web of birks. Pretty neat! Take it out for a test drive; it could be a very useful tool at the reference desk! Here's how they did it.
A tip 'o the hat to LibrarianinBlack for the link.
