Comparitech (https://www.comparitech.com/blog/vpn-privacy/using-deep-web-search-engines-for-academic-research/) Knowing where to look when diving into the deep end of the web is the first, and probably most important step you should take before starting anything else. While the deep web is almost infinitely vast when it comes to the amount of information you can find, unlike what most people are used to when searching for something in Google, all of that data isn’t centralized. This means for as many different subjects you can think of (academia, business, economics, etc), there are an equal number of search engines designed to dive into the deep web archives of those particular subjects.

ParentSquare (www.parentsquare.com) We started ParentSquare because a solution was needed for parents. In today’s ed-tech world, there are many tools focused on the school, teachers, students and the PTA/ PTO – school management systems, student information systems, learning management systems, newsletter tools etc. – but nothing for parents! As a parent, there is a confusing array of disparate one-way information sources that only keep parents as spectators
