Where librarians and the internet meet: internet searching, Web 2.0 resources, search engines and their development. These are my personal views and not those of CILIP or any other organisation I may be associated with.
I was recently tasked with finding a user manual for my wife's sewing machine. Normally the first place that I'd go for something like this is to the website of the company that produced it, but curiosity got the better of me, and I decided to see if there was a search engine that provides access to user manuals. It turns out that there is, and it's called Diplodocs It's quite impressive and covers lots of manufacturers, lots of types of manuals, with an easy to use search interface.
