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
