  • Tired of getting what seems like a million returns on your Google Search?
  • Sick of wading through the poor quality sites to find a reliable source of information?

Try SearchCredible.com.
This tool does not combine all of the search engines in one search. But it does provide a selection of targeted tools that should make it easier to find the information you need. Don't forget that some of the databases are also available on computers in the Brussels Library or online through Army Europe Libraries using your My Account log in. For more information on that, scroll down to the Virtual Reference Library entry on this page! (2 August 2010)
