Using search engines alone may not often turn in enough information when searching the Internet. This could be frustrating for an inexperienced information seeker. Even if the information is available, the results turned out by the search engine could be too many to sift through. This may not be compatible with the limited time at the disposal of an administrator or manager in the health sector who have many tasks to perform.
My aim in this article is to point your attention to an uncommon tool for seamless access to information on the Internet. You do not need additional software to access this section of the Internet as is the case for pdf documents whereby you must install the acrobat reader on your system.
