Source
Reference and user services quarterly. 37(1998) no.4, S.319-331
Year

Abstract
Reviews the exponential growth of Internet resources leading to the emergence of hundreds of Internet directories to organize those resources. Based upon their format, content, and characteristics, these Internet directories are categorized into 8 groups. From one of these groups. 'Subject directories published in professional journals' all published Internet directories are identified and listed in detail. Using Paradox-For-Windows, a comprehensive database of more than 350 of these directories was developed. Analyzes and interprets the data contained in the database and reviews the strengths and weaknesses of print Internet subject directories as compared to online directories and other search engines
