For librarians, teachers, and parents frustrated by students' fast food approach to information consumption, Research Beyond Google is a very useful guide to "119 Authoritative, Invisible, and Comprehensive Resources."

So, if someone would create a Google Custom Search with these 119 resources, like Peter Van Dijck's IASearch.net, then we'd be all set!
