2_ Copy and Paste a web address into the above form and it becomes a URL field search (http:// is replaced by url: if available on your chosen search tool). This makes local browsing very convenient. Remember, one aspect of quality assessment stems from a knowledge of other documents by the same author and publisher - something easy to accomplish with an URL field search
3_ Google currently uses the intitle and inurl field search syntax, Dmoz uses t: and u: while most others use url: and title:. The above form will ensure the right syntax is applied. (t: and u: are accepted shorthand for these two fields).
4_ The directories have been tweaked so if you paste a web address, it will search the directory to determine if that website is indexed, and where. Reference librarians in particular can use this technique to quickly find comparable sites.
5_ Some of the searches will request 40 results, rather than the default 10 or 20.
