  • Description

Cutting through the jargon, this book addresses the growing problem of how to sort the quality sites from the mass of junk available. Uniquely, it suggests a system of criteria and guidelines, developed through empirical research, for selecting and evaluating high-quality information resources. Areas covered include: search engines; subject catalogues and directories; rating and reviewing services; subject-based gateway services; and virtual libraries. Information and guidance about the new Resource Discovery Network, the potential role and usefulness of metadata in locating quality information, and using Web "citations" for retrieving quality material have also been added to this edition.
