Is Google the best resource site for outdoor educators and trainers?

    Google (outdoor) Scholar
    Google Scholar is a great resource for finding academic articles and books. I recommend choosing 'Advanced Scholar Search' (and 'Advanced Search Tips') to make your search as specific as you can. For example, choosing the final option (Social Sciences, Arts, and Humanities) saves you from getting lots of irrelevant results. Depending on your enquiry, you may also want to select 'Environmental Sciences' or 'Business'.
Better than Google for 'outdoor' searches?
These advanced search engines have some very useful additional features such as grouping of results in categories or the listing of expert sites:
Teoma, Wisenut.

These advanced metasearch engines are amongst the best:
ixquick, vivisimo, queryserver and Turbo10
For the very latest reviews of search engines see SearchEngineWatch.com
