Paul, Nora; Williams, Margot; Hane, Paula, J., Ed.
This guide profiles the best of the Internet's "scout sites"--Web sites that provide access to the most important online sources of information on specific subjects. Scout sites act as Web directories, offering researchers an alternative to search engines by providing organized collections of links to the most appropriate and useful Web sites for a given topic. This book highlights the premier scout sites for over 25 topic areas, including: health and medicine, education, law, politics, business, travel, history, religion, money and investment, entertainment, literature, computers/Internet, environment, food, art and architecture, and sports. Also provided are resource evaluation guidelines and a discussion on the growth of Web-based information resources. The body of the guide is organized into four parts according to subject area: (1) Life and Times; (2) Business and Professional Resources; (3) Arts and Entertainment; and (4) Science and Technology. (Includes an index.) (AEF)
