Specialty Databases

Sometimes, a specialty database will be more effective at finding what you need than a general search engine or meta-search engine. Specialty databases are dedicated to collecting relevant sites and content for a particular subject area.

For example, Findlaw targets[12] legal resources, and Achoo! collects[13] health and medical sites. Beaucoup lists[14] more than 1,200 engines, directories, and indices from around the world. At Search.com, you will find a search service[15] with access to more than 100 specialized content databases.
