My book, Social media for creative libraries was published by Facet Publishing at the beginning of this year. I am focusing on library activities and the tools that can aid and assist.

My latest news

Search national and regional newspapers!

There hasn’t really been a good search engine for local or national newspapers for some time, so I decided to create something. You can search the major newspapers or all 384 major and local papers. Alternatively, you can search for regional newspapers as arranged by place/county/region by clicking on the link to the right above. If there’s enough interest I’ll also do local newspapers for Scotland, N. Ireland and Wales.

Yandex - an alternative to Google

Google is becoming less and less useful as the months go by, and it loses even more functionality. Many searchers are starting to question the value of it for them, and are looking for alternatives. Yandex is certainly worth looking at, and I’ve done an indepth review of the engine. My view: it’s a worthy competitor with excellent functionality.

200+ Search Engines!

There’s a lot more to life than just Google when it comes to searching the Internet. I have put together a listing of about 200 search engines in alphabetical order with a brief description of each.

Feel free to take a look and try out something different today!
