 How do I find...   Finding information on the web is more difficult than it needs to be. However, there are three sources of help,

search engines - index web sites and try to match your keywords to entries in their database,
directory pages - sort web sites into categories and allow you to drill down to the article you're looking for, and
downloadable software - searches existing databases and provides a list of web pages.
Search engines.

These are our favourites.
  The first two have no adverts on them, the others have relatively few compared to the more well known sites.   www.google.com
    Download and install webferret, then enter your keywords. It will return up to 500 web pages if available.    www.webferret.com
