Gateways are lists of sites that have been checked out for quality and appropriateness. Unlike a search engine, you have to do your own hunting around.

Kids Search Tools
A collection of 14 search websites with all of their search boxes listed on one page.



A search engine has a database of files. When you type in a word(s), it searches that database and returns a list of links to websites on your topic.

IPL - Internet Public Library
The collection of the Youth Division of the Internet Public Library is developed for children ages 4-11, their parents, teachers, and anyone else interested in the literature and information directed to and about children. Material used and sites recommended are chosen based on their appropriateness for the subject matter (ie, science projects, math, stories, literature discussion, etc) and should be written and maintained by an authoritative source. The information should be current, accurate, and presented in an objective and well-organized manner.

"...a safe Internet gateway for kids... created and maintained by educators"

KidsClick! was created by a group of librarians at the Ramapo Catskill Library System, as a logical step in addressing concerns about the role of public libraries in guiding their young users to valuable and age appropriate web sites.
