Sweet Search is a search engine made for students. It contains a limited number of results, based on only 35,000 sites, which have all been evaluated by research experts, librarians and teachers, according to its About Page.

Your search results page look a little different than they would on Google or Yahoo. First, there’s more context, to help you decide which links you’ll want to use.

Second, you’ll see checkboxes in the results. These enable you to decide which sections are relevant to your research and save these results, with the URL to the source, in a Google Doc, or send yourself an e-mail, or save to Evernote, or several other options. You’ll see your choices in the upper right hand corner of the results page:

If you save to Google Docs, it will look like this. These sentences are copied directly, so of course, you should not use them as your own work. But this can help you to take notes and summarize.
