Reuse of knowledge bases and the semantic web are two promising areas in knowledge technologies. Given some user requirements, finding the suitable ontologies is an important task in both these areas. This paper discusses our work on OntoSearch, a kind of "ontology Google", which can help users find ontologies on the Internet. OntoSearch combines Google Web APIs with a hierarchy visualization technique. It allows the user to perform keyword searches on certain types of "ontology" files, and to visually inspect the files to check their relevance. OntoSearch system is based on Java, JSP, Jena and Moss technologies.
