Searching Using Text: Beyond Web Search Engines

There is often a bewildering choice of sources for searching for topics in chemical information using text words. When looking for basic facts or for a specific article reference, Internet search engines (including Google Scholar) that search content on the open Web are often good tools. Freely available Web sites of chemical information, such as spectra, chemical properties, safety information, and more, abound. Using a Web search engine to perform chemically oriented topic searches using text terms can yield some good information, but this is usually not the best method of performing a more comprehensive topic search.
