SweetSearch is a search engine for students. It searches only the
35,000 Web sites that its staff of research experts, librarians and
teachers have evaluated and approved when creating the content. It
evaluates search results and "fine-tunes" them, by increasing the
ranking of Web sites from organizations such as the Library of Congress,
the Smithsonian, PBS and university websites. SweetSearch
helps students find outstanding information, faster. It enables them to
determine the most relevant results from a list of credible resources,
and makes it much easier for them to find primary sources.
