GENERAL SITES:

  • Internet Public Library/Librarians' Internet Index:  This is an excellent subject directory to quality sites on the Internet.  Sites can be accessed through a subject tree or through a keyword search.
  • Digital Librarian: "A librarian's choice of the best of the Web"
  • Reference Desk  Refdesk is an online "attempt to bring some semblance of order to the chaos of the Internet."  It offers up access to quick facts and websites with comprehansive information on a topic.
  • The WWW Virtual Library:  "The WWW Virtual Library (VL) is the oldest catalogue of the Web, started by Tim Berners-Lee, the creator of HTML and of the Web itself, in 1991 at CERN in Geneva. Unlike commercial catalogues, it is run by a loose confederation of volunteers, who compile pages of key links for particular areas in which they are expert; even though it isn't the biggest index of the Web, the VL pages are widely recognised as being amongst the highest-quality guides to particular sections of the Web."
  • Virtual Reference Shelf/Library of Congress   The Library serving the reference needs of members of Congress provides quick facts, access to online services and detailed research guides on topics of interest.
