Searching the invisible (and the visible) web : selected sites
It would be invidious - and foolish - to attempt to list every site of use, the list seems to grow longer by the hour.
The best I can do is to list some of my favorite sites at time of writing. Where there are HELP pages, use them. It could be worth your while taking a look at any Advanced Search options.
