I just happened upon something pretty cool from...guess who? GOOGLE! It's called What Do You Love and it is a modified search engine that offers results using all of their various products. When you search on What Do You Love you will get a visual sampling of blogs, images, videos, maps and more. It is essentially your one stop shop for your search. Check it out!
This could be used by students when they start their research on a topic but it's also really cool to use just about anytime you want to find out more about what you love.
