free search engines, free content

The American Bar Association now has a Free Full-text Online Law Review/Law Journal Search Engine.
This will be good news if you don't have access to user-pays indexes like LegalTrac or LINX, especially if it's American material you're after - in which case, you'd also want to search Google Scholar Legal Opinions and Journals.
The WORLDLII Law Journals Project is doing similar things, and includes, amongst others, the Otago Law Review.
These are great - a free way to find free full-text articles.
