Chapter 9. Northern Light

Good to Know

  • Launched in 1997, Northern Light handles plain-English queries and complex Boolean expressions equally well.

  • What sets it apart from its rivals is that it lets you simultaneously search both the Web and a database of some 25 million full-text documents from 7,100 other sources—making it an especially good choice for researching news stories and business information.

  • Northern Light also has a unique approach to organizing search results into “folders” of related information, so that you can find what you're looking for more quickly.

  • Its Search Alert Service, providing e-mail notification of updates to saved searches, is the best of all the leading search engines.
