Look It Up
What is Look It Up?
Look It Up is a utility to search for terms on multiple web sites at once. It helps you find research sites based on Types e.g. Dictionary or Images. Once you choose a Type, you are presented with a range of Sources (pre-defined web sites that support keyword searching). Each Source appears in a separate tab (you can have as many of these Source tabs as you want). Enter the terms you want to look up and Look It Up will look up the search results of all Source web sites simultaneously. You can even define your own Source types!
Default Source Types include: Almanac, Biography, Dictionary, Encyclopaedia, Entertainment, Images, Legal, Library, Literary, Maps, Medical, News, Quotations, Search, Technology, Thesaurus, Translation, Video, Weather and Wiki. There are over 250 Sources included by default with more being added all the time.Please note: a very limited number of Sources need an account from that site before you can perform searches. You can perform two Look It Up searches before the program will request a serial number. Relaunch to continue using the program.
