Lycos is an Internet search engine and web directory. It was born from a research project by Dr. Michael Mauldin of Carnegie Mellon University in 1994. The original Lycos search engine went on to be used in Carnegie Mellon's Informedia Digital Library project.

The name "Lycos" comes from Latin, meaning "wolf spider".

The Lycos company was eventually purchased by Terra SA, a subsidiary of the Spanish telephone company Telefónica, and renamed Terra Lycos.
