As a teacher librarian I just love Qwiki for all kinds of reference retrieval. Just enter your question and a computer generated voice will relate information while displaying images, maps and videos. This is a breathtaking tool for all students to use for finding relevant, visual, and interesting information. Your search is fast, experiential and very personal. It currently holds a database of over 3 million articles and is constantly expanding. I am not sure how often this gets updated, but I guess if it is like Wikipedia it will be on a regular basis. This is my new best techie tool this week, this month and this year! Yes for reference librarian Qwiki!
Blessings to you!
