Can't find a book by it's title or author? - 0 views

  •  
    This is a free website that allows users to search for books not only by the title or author, but by ISBN numbers.

    I found this helpful for when textbooks are hard to find. Instructors usually provide the ISBN numbers in their syllabi and this is one resource a student could use to locate out-of-stock books.

    Since we were talking about the history of Google earlier today, I found this and I thought I'd share with you all. It gives a great detailed timeline (provided by Google themselves) on their history.

How To Build A Basic Web Crawler To Pull Information From A Website (Part 1) - 0 views

  •  
    This a great website not only describing how web crawlers work, but how you can create on your own. Descriptions and pictures really help to create one if your stuck too.
  •  
    That is a good tutorial -- thanks, Gordon. My own PHP skills are good enough to build this, though at the moment I don't need to. I had forgotten the synonym "scrapers," too. Useful quotation: "One typical task that Google performs is to pull all the links from a page and see which sites they are endorsing."
