As we first mentioned on Monday, Google’s specialty search tools including two that focused on government material, Uncle Sam and USGov.Google.com, are no longer available.
We have now CONFIRMED that both of these specialty search tools (aka limited, focused or vertical search) along with four others are NO LONGER AVAILABLE. Their URLs now redirect users to a Google homepage. Most of these services has been available for more than a decade.
Search Engine Land has details in a post written by INFOdocket’s own Gary Price.
Three other resources that we like for government info are:
2. Explore GovDocs (via the Government Documents Center, University of Michigan)
3. BrowseTopics.gov (via FDLP and Oklahoma St. University)
