Internet users can draw upon these resources to find up-to-the-minute information about literature and the arts, religion, philosophy, library science, and education. The book enables readers to explore thousands of finding guides in subject areas such as: book discussions and reviews; film and video resources; popular music; theater and performance studies; architecture and building/construction; environmental conservation; Christian, Buddhist, Tibetan, and other religious studies resources; the occult and mysticism; and journalism. It also contains numerous library and information science job listings, arranged by both region and profession. The volume is divided into easy-to-use, fully indexed subject guides that allow access to exact topics and provides a critical analysis of the content. Information is provided on everything the novice Internet user needs to know to get started: navigating traditionally with Telnet; FTP (File Transfer Protocol); ways of efficiently searching with Gopher, World Wide Web; and looking for information with Archie, Veronica, Jumpstation, and WAIS (Wide Area Information Servers).
