Find Research Guides Online

Cornell announced today its new Legal Research Engine available at"
This specialized search engine helps users easily find authoritative online legal research guides on every subject. It searches approximately 20 different web sites that either prolifically publish guides, or index and link to guides. The number of web sites searched was deliberately kept small to keep search results manageable and focused. You can also add it to your Google home page. "

This is a nice resource but because it searches whole web pages a lot of extraneous results pop up when you run a search. For example a search on "right to die" does return a couple research guides on point but you also get some less useful items like an LLRX article about web searching.
