Abstract

Yippy, the family and student-friendly search engine has acquired Highbeam, the academic and business information database. Highbeam had been part of Gale, and ultimately Cengage Learning, since 2008 and has become known as an affordable and reliable business information and research tool. Yippy acquired the Clusty search engine in 2010 and markets itself as a safe metasearch engine that filters what it deems to be unsuitable results.
