TRAVELER - A Smarter Search Experience


Why use Traveler instead of Google or Yahoo?

Traveler searches provide . . .

  • thousands of licensed, reputable resources from known sources
  • no ads, spam or spyware - no "phishing" for personal data
  • safe resources for students of all ages
  • users can save, print, and e-mail search results with current citation formats
  • Lexile reading levels identify materials for specific ages

Google and Yahoo search . . .

  • anything that is on the Internet
  • computer selection of pages at random according to keywords
  • top results are usually there because of payment
  • do not investigate where the information came from or accuracy
  • provide a mixture of web pages that are personal and commercial sites
