SurfWax

LIS News is pointing to an LLRX (Law Library Resource Xchange) review of SurfWax, a new search tool for organizing online information and research. Not sure if the results are particularly great. Most interesting, is that after you do an initial search with a term that is in their thesaurus, you can click the "Focus" button to see the thesaural entry for the term with links to broader and narrower index terms. I'm not sure why you can't do this from the home page, but would seem like some researchers would want to be able to do that. For that matter, why not offer a way to browse all index terms alphanumerically to start your search?
