Title
Classifying Internet access tools : a user-centered approach
Source
Resource sharing and information networks. 9(1994) no.2, S.19-37

Abstract
Users need assistance in selecting tools to facilitate their use of the Internet. Outline existing catgerizations of these tools which have focused on the operation of the tools, the services they provide, or their underlying functions. Proposes an alternative user centered categorization along a number of different axes simultaneously and focusing on user requirements (communication, retrieval, browsing, searching), user skills (logging in, navigation, search expressions, categorizing information), and user interface (screen, GUI). 17 existing tools are discussed and classified using this approach. Indicates desirable future improvements in the areas of integration, richness of document types, and standards
