Google De-Enhancements

A few weeks ago I posted that Google had discontinued the Google Uncle Sam search engine for government documents.

Law Librarian Blog reports that Google has, unfortunately, discontinued a few more things:

  • "The option for Advanced Search no longer appears on the main Google page. You can still get there by going to http://www.google.com/advanced_search. The option still appears next to the search box on a results page for a previous search. Advanced Search has been vastly simplified in its filtering options, suggesting that Google thinks its omnivorous general search is good enough."
  • "Google News Archives search is no longer available as a direct search, nor will there be any new content added to the project.... The content that currently exists should still be available through a general search and through the Advanced Search option in Google News."
