Wednesday, February 21, 2007 New finding tool improves your development information search

Initiated by ISS with collaborators like Euforic and some of its members, is a high quality search engine for practitioners, researchers and students in the area of global development studies.

Online since June 2006, the added value of Focuss is the 'human' element it builds upon. Resources indexed in Focuss are selected by librarians, researchers and practitioners, thus assuring that every search will give more 'focused' results.

Try it out for yourself!

The Focuss team is also looking for individuals and institutions to help improve the service. This can be done by joining Focuss, promoting its use inside organisations and networks, and, most important, by contributing resources and suggestions to the search engine. Such a collective effort will help us produce a more valuable service for colleagues and peers working to make development knowledge and information m ore accessible.

Contact Richard Lalleman at Focuss for more details.
