SweetSearch is a Search Engine for Students.  This is a great resource to start with, because you are searching a limited database of websites that have been evaluated by researchers, librarians and teachers.  SweetSearch helps students find outstanding information, faster. It enables you to determine the most relevant results from a list of credible resources, and makes it much easier for you to find primary sources.
