Harvard's New Tool to Search 600+ Think Tanks

Want to know what hundreds of think tanks are saying about a particular issue?  Instead of going to each think tank site individually, there are now several tools that allow you to search those think tanks with the click of a button.

Harvard University is the latest entity to provide such a tool.  Called "Think Tank Search," it allows users to freely search 670 think tank websites using keywords.

Others that provide a similar search feature include the University of Oregon's "American Policy Directory," as well as Find Policy, a side project of Transparify that allows users to search think tank sites grouped by topic (such as climate, economy, and foreign policy).
