GoogleFOAM becomes FOAMSearch

Posted by on 2 Jan, 2014 in Search | 1 comment

Well, I have gone and changed the site name once again…. Why, you ask?

I will be adding Refinements to the Custom Search Engine over the next few weeks that will allow you to search the growing FOAM universe in specific realms. I plan specific Ultrasound, Rural/General Practice/Family Medicine (GP/FM), PreHospital and Retrieval Medicine (PHARM), and Anaesthesia refinements initially.  More will be added as subject areas in the FOAM arena mature to require it. I want to add an EMCrit’s Journals Refinement, but PubMed, Google...
