Karen Muller, ALA Librarian and Knowledge Management Specialist, used the Google Co-op Custom Search Engine (CSE) to build the tool and explains the goal of its use is "to be able to focus searches of web-based materials...,"

She noted "the possibility of setting up a means of retrieving more focused results on an exploratory web search appealed."

How is Rollyo useful compared to TSE?: It narrows your search down to only a few trusted sources. A welcome retreat from the current in-your-face information chaos of the web.

p.s. Rollyo is a search engine which allows users to create and publish their own personal search engines, based on websites they decide to include in their 'SearchRoll'.

S-2.0 can help make search more meaningful, subjective and task-based.

While TSE (Traditional Search Engine) is good for finding information, S-2.0 is good at discovering new information at a rapid pace.

S-2.0 enabled data is distributed through the lateral route of a user's interests - rather than the direct route of TSEs, which require a user to carefully craft his/her query to be an accurate statement of the information desired.

Current S-2.0 technologies do not replace traditional search engines. They rather enhance and grow new possibilities. They work in conjunction with TSEs to provide a more powerful search.
