Sebastian Heath has programmed (in PERL) a new resource to facilitate
"Cross Project Resource Discovery."  The basic idea is quite simple:
keywords used for one search engine can profitably be passed along to many
other search engines.  For instance, someone interested in finding out
about "human sacrifice" can go to
http://www.stoa.org/finder-bin/showlinks?kws=human+sacrifice and pursue the
topic from that one page into (at the moment)

General Tools (Argos, AlltheWeb, Encyclopedia Britannica, Google, Yahoo!)

Bibliography (OhioLink: The Ohio Library and Information Network, American
Numismatic Society Library Catalogue, Aufstieg und Niedergang der
Roemischen Welt, Byrn Mawr Classical Reviews, Diotima's bibliographies,
Gomon Online Bibliographische Datenbank, TOCS-IN, and ZPE)

Ancient and Medieval sites (Perseus Project, Internet Classics Archive at
MIT, the general search engine for the Stoa server)

Specialized Collections (Jeremy Rutter's Prehistoric Archaeology of the
Aegean, American Numismatic Society coin database, Advanced Papyrological
Information SystemTest Databases at Berkeley and Michigan, the Suda On Line)

We will add other lookups as they become available if they seem good.  We
also welcome comments on the user interface and other issues.  There is a
blank form at the bottom of the generated page where you can enter your own
flavor of keywords.  Also note that it is a simple matter to go the other
way as well, i.e. to program links-with-keywords into this resource from
other search engines: for instance, you may notice that nowadays if you
search the Suda On Line for "triremes"
(http://www.stoa.org/sol-cgi-bin/search.pl?searchstr=triremes) you will be
asked at the end of the search results from that database if you want to
look for the word ("triremes") in other resources as well (with a link to
the Showlinks gizmo).

Thanks are due to the Center for Computational Sciences at UK for bringing
Sebastian Heath to UK recently and giving us time to talk about this.
