For students, the internet can be a daunting and sometimes dangerous place to search for information. The Find-It-All Collection from Follett Software aims to help kids find the best, most accurate information in the least amount of time through the use of a single, easy-to-use search interface.

The solution consists of two components: One Search, which offers students 24-hour, one-stop searching of multiple resources simultaneously; and Knowledge Links, which provides access to thousands of safe, high-quality K-12 web sites.

One Search simplifies the search process by enabling students to search multiple databases at once, anytime, anywhere via the internet—including subscription-based services you might already use and those available free of charge on the web. Students can avoid time-consuming, repetitive searches by viewing one set of results from the combined resources.

Knowledge Links broadens students’ access to information even further by enabling them to conduct research safely on the web. It gives students direct access to more than 160,000 educator-approved web sites, organized by subject area. Follett says these links soon will be aligned to state and national standards.

Annual subscriptions to Find-It-All One Search and Find-It-All Knowledge Links sell for $699 apiece. If purchased together, the total package costs $1,200.
