NIH releases metasearch engine

November 4, 2009

NIH has recently released a metasearch engine NIH Library AllPlus Search Demo which is now available in beta mode. I came across this in the always helpful Resource Shelf, where you can find a detailed review of the demo and initial results.

Despite the name they’ve given it (a mouthful) my first impression is positive. I don’t see it replacing any one resource however it may prove a useful quick alternative for information pros and our clients who frequently search government (i.e. NCBI, NLM, and NIH resources) and the open web.
