At http://www.philb.com/whichengine.htm

you will find a table by Phil Bradley  - a well known UK InfoPro, which gives 
his take on which search engine does what best....

An example:

Q.      I want some suggested categories to narrow my search

A.      Clusty suggests narrower topics to search under
        Teoma suggests categories and collections of resources by experts
        Wisenut also has category suggestions

Automated Indexing and Abstracting: Current Status and Future Trends

NFAIS is organizing a forum on the current status and future trends in
the development and application of technology for automated indexing and
abstracting.  This one-day session will be held on April 22, 2005 at St.
John's University Manhattan Campus, New York, NY, from 9:00am - 4:30pm.
The meeting will begin with a definition of computer-assisted
indexing/abstracting, its pros and cons, and the kinds of organizations
who are - or who should consider - using this methodology.   This will
be followed by an overview of the current technologies, their
features/functionalities, and the platforms required for implementation,
as well as a presentation that will help in the evaluation of these
technologies against your specific data requirements.  A session on how
to implement the technology and successfully manage expectations will be
presented along with several case studies.

Whether you are a data provider seeking to cost-effectively keep apace
with the growth in information, or an information professional involved
with the indexing /publishing of your institution's intellectual
property, this meeting will provide you with a foundation on automated
indexing technology and how it may play a role in your organization's
future.  Register early, as seating is limited.  The draft program,
registration form, directions to the meeting location, and a list of
nearby hotels is available at:
