The Internet as a Reference Tool: Accessing Scientific and Technical Information via the World Wide Web.
Mosier, Mona L.
Los Alamos National Laboratory's Research Library has developed a World Wide Web (WWW) page to allow laboratory staff, as well as individuals from around the world, access to information via the Internet. While many Web pages offer information solely on the organization, the Los Alamos National Laboratory page provides links to reference materials in different scientific and technical subject areas, electronic publications, and directories, as well as pointers to lists elsewhere on the Web that cover each subject. This paper describes the home page setup and presents an overview of searching options on the Web. Subject- specific organized lists of hyperlinks (Yahoo, WWW Virtual Library, Planet Earth) and search engines (Webcrawler, Lycos, Yahoo) are compared and evaluated. (SWC)
