Sometimes you just need to know what something means — a word, a phrase, or an acronym. The MetaGlossary site now defines over 2,000,000 terms and phrases, and it’s easy to use. Just enter your search query, and you’ll get back a list of definitions, and the web pages from where they are defined. You can rate the definition and email it to a friend, if you like. If you’re using the Firefox browser, you can install a MetaGlossary plug-in that will allow you to run queries on a toolbar.

This tip comes from Internet Legal Research Weekly which is published by Tom Mighell. Each weekly issue features a few blogs, some “legally relevant” web sites, and at least one or two games.
