Google government search scrutinized

LLRX, a Web journal for legal researchers, has reviewed the newly unveiled Google U.S. Government Search.

Peggy Garvin, author of The United States Government Internet Manual, compares the new search offfering to General Services Administration'sFirstGov, as well as to Google former gov offering, Google Uncle Sam. Google's new search covers a wider range of sites and offers more advanced search capabilities than the company's site. It still can not, as FirstGov can, limit searches to only federal or only state and local sites. Read Garvin's report here. (Thanks to the Free Government Information blog for this tip).
