Awesome Library

“In 1995, Dr. R. Jerry Adams began developing an Internet library database.   Federal funds were used to sponsor a Web site that allowed the public to gain access to the privately held database.   In 1996 a second federal program sponsored a Web interface under the name of “Library-in-the-Sky” so that the public could continue to gain access.

In May of 1997, the Evaluation and Development Insitute (EDI) began offering the database through the Web portal “Awesome Library.”   EDI, co-owner of the database, has also issued licenses to other organizations to utilize it.” ®

Kids Search – Where Kid’s Search the Internet

“Let’s face it, kids are curious. They love to learn and find information on the internet. Whether it be online books, games, homework help etc. – anything that can be found, will be found by our kids. This is great BUT, while they are searching, it is very possible for typos to happen and cause unwanted adult sites appearing in our kid’s search results.”

“We at Kids Search™ believe that our children should be able to surf the internet safely. This is why we created Kids Search. All searches made through Kids Search will first check against our Database to screen out any potential search that could result in adult websites. If our filter misses anything, Google’s SafeSearch™ Technology is our backup and will additionally block adult Websites and Images from Kid’s Searches.”
