UJIKO.COM is a search engine that is supposed to reflect your personal preferences as you use it. The search engine queries data from Yahoo and uses KartOO technology.
A search for Indiana Wesleyan University's Off Campus Library Services retrieved links that were relevant to the library resources and services, though it scraped the graphic image from the university's home page, and not from the library.

CLUUZ.COM is a search engine that shows visually the relationships between web links. Unlike visual clustering search engines that just list web links ( like MOOTER.COM, QUINTURA.COM, or WEBBRAIN.COM ), CLUUZ.COM also scrapes phone numbers and other information from each website it indexes.
