Searching for Amnesty

Searching for Amnesty

Amnesty International, the British based human rights charity famed for its campaigns against human rights abuses in Burma, Cuba and Australia has adopted a search engine developed in Australia by 80-20 Software.

The charity Web site will use 80-20 Software's Discovery search engine to provide users with concept based search across its 20,000 files. Amnesty claims the site is visited by 12,000 people daily and serves 3 million pages a month.

"Our particular challenge is that visitors have more diverse needs than visitors to most Web sites. For example, a human rights lawyer that needs information about a particular type of case in a specific region," said Mike Shamash the co-ordinator for the charities Web site team.
