Since 2009, SweetSearch has been the best place for students - and anyone else - to begin research.
It leverages Google to search only a fully vetted "whitelist" of websites. The original index was created by 50+ librarians, educators and researchers who collectively invested over 100,000 hours in finding the best resources.
We've worked hard to keep the index authoritative and appropriate. This summer, we reviewed every link in the index, and found new, worthy websites we had missed.
Add a fresh, mobile friendly look and we say confidently that SweetSearch is the best research engine for students to begin their search. Some educators have asked us about the Google Ads at the top; we are working on options to remove them. For now, tell students to ignore the clearly labeled, first few links at the top and then dive into the spectacular results below.
Once we made SweetSearch better than ever, we decided to make more of it!
- SweetSearch History, in beta, searches a whitelist of 2,000+ primary source & other authoritative history websites. It includes "modern" sources, such as newspapers and magazines, but weights websites of museums, universities and official government sources higher. We are adding design elements and "field testing" it - and we would love your feedback on whether there are websites we should add, delete, or re-weight.
- With all the talk of "fake news," we also created SweetSearch News. It searches 1,600+ websites of credible newspapers, magazines and other current events media. It more heavily weights niche, regional and ex-US resources than most news search engines. There is an option to see only ex-US resource
- For the first time, we also offer image search, in all three search engines.
All of our search engines include quality websites for younger students; to find them, use "students" or "kids" as a keyword.

Can one course stem the root cause of bullying, substance abuse and self-harm? Can it also foster a culture that creates empowered, empathetic, collaborative, passionate agents of change, who know they matter?
I was proud to co-author, with Angela Maiers, an online course on Choose2Matter. It's the most important work I've ever done.
