Infomine - http://infomine.ucr.edu
[From their website] Browse annotated research and educational sites enhanced by second-tier "robot-selected" results.
Google Scholar - http://scholar.google.com/schhp?hl=en&tab=ws
Exactly what it says! It will also help you find where the scholarly work has been cited. Amazing tool for research! If only it had been around when I was writing my Master's! ;') ~Meg
ipl2 - http://www.ipl.org
A site of sites related to your topic. For example, instead of sending you to papers or journal articles (as both Infomine and Google Scholar will do), it will send you to sites related to your topic: if you were to, say, enter "freedom and responsibility," the engine would give you databases and sites related to that topic instead of articles.
Virtual Learning Resource Center - http://www.virtuallrc.com/about.html
This is similar to the ipl2 but appears to have slightly better quality sites. In its mission statement it says, "The mission of the Virtual Learning Resources Center is to index thousands of the best academic information websites, selected by teachers and library professionals worldwide, in order to provide to students and teachers current, valid information for school and university academic projects."
