Intute is a free online service that helps you to find the best web resources for your studies and research. It was created in response to users' needs and the changing Internet information environment.
With millions of resources available on the Internet, it can be difficult to find useful material. The Intute subject specialists review and evaluate thousands of resources to help you choose the key websites in your subject.

The discipline focus of their service is delivered through four new subject groups:
* Science, Engineering and Technology (including geography)
* Arts and Humanities
* Social Sciences
* Health and Life Sciences
