I have recently discovered (but not explored much), what seems to be a very powerful tool for finding scientific information.

http://scirus.com/

The catch is, much, or even maybe most of the search results sites are membership only access types.

I haven't explored the requirements or costs of these memberships.

Anybody out there, who is familar with "Scirus"?

Per Marks recent request:

I thought I had put more information in the previous message, than it turns out I did.

Scirus is a science only search engine. You can do searches for web information, for journal information, or for both.

The journal information links seem to all require a special (ie University) membership to access. I am told by a geology prof that much of that information is online only; is no longer available in print.

The web links are freely accessable.

John Dvorak, in his "Inside Track" column (PC Magazine, 10/15/02, p. 65), is heaping a lot of praise on the Library of Michigan's eLibrary.

The address is http://www.mel.org .

I have not yet checked this site out, but I thought I'd bring it to the attention of all, while I had it in mind.

I just got a junk email on it earlier this week and did a test search. The links do look very relevant.

Recommended - Download and install the Google toolbar.

http://toolbar.google.com

I found out about this in PC Magazine (Oct. 15, 2002 issue, p. 126).

Some great online references especially for evolution/biochemical evolution literature:

Pubmed
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/PubMed/

Subscription probably required (free trials may be available)

Online Encyclopedia of Life Sciences:
http://www.els.net

Web of Science (citation index)
http://www.webofscience.com

Re: Bump - Plug for scirus.com
When I can't get find a paper I'm looking for (for free) from Google, I usually use Google "Scholar": http://scholar.google.com/

Not sure how it compares to Scirus. I'll try and check into it later.

In the search engine list below, Search Engine Watch provides a guide to the major search engines of the web. Why are these considered to be "major" search engines? Because they are either well-known or well-used.
