Here is a practical, step-by-step guide to resource discovery designed to be both a tutorial for how and a resource for now. The handbook helps novice or advanced Internet users conduct comprehensive research investigations - and find the answers to quick reference queries. It shows how to find information on the Internet by providing in-depth coverage on all useful and usable resources, including virtual libraries, Internet directories, communities of people, and Internet search tools. Examples of real searches are given for each resource. Methods to streamline locating information and addresses and instructions for a broad but selective list of Internet subject guides, directories and search engines are also offered. Additional sections, including a review of other types of information resources such as electronic discussion lists and conferencing tools, round out this useful manual that is ideal for reference librarians, students and researchers of any kind.
