Péter's PolySearch Engines

     These PolySearch Engines allow you to run simple queries across several open access ready reference databases or publishers’ abstract archives in one fell swoop. This is especially convenient for corroborating information in different dictionaries, and encyclopedias, and for comprehensive literature searches.

     Results are shown simultaneously from the sites in adjacent panes. The original query brings to you each selected target sites  (instead of merging their results), so if you want to broaden or narrow the search, you can refine the simple query using truncation symbols, Boolean and proximity operators, field limiters – whatever is allowed by the native search engine of each site.

     It is not perfect, but better than to hop from site to site, drill down to the search template, and type in the query time and again. Enjoy!
