The Web is always moving, always changing. As some Web sites come, others go, but the most effective sites have been well established. A Subject Guide to Quality Web Sites provides a list of key web sites in various disciplines that will assist researchers with a solid starting point for their queries. The sites included in this collection are stable and have librarian tested high-quality information: the most important attribute information can have.

The sites in this volume are arranged into 16 major categories: Arts and Humanities; Books, Electronic, and Print; Business; Computing; Education; Health and Medicine; History and Culture; Home and Recreation; Law; Libraries, Museums, and Museum Studies; Mathematics; News; Physical Sciences; Reference (General Information); Social Sciences; and Terrorism and Counter-Terrorism. Although the scope of the book is broad, it touches upon subjects useful to a variety of researchers: from grade school, high school or college students to business professionals, teachers, and professors.

About the Author:

Paul R. Burden is the director of library services at the Tinley Park, Illinois campus of DeVry University.

Review:

Burden (director, library svcs., DeVry Univ., Tinley Park; "A Brief Bibliography" in Knowledge Management Lessons Learned: What Works and What Doesn't) has assembled some 4200 links arranged by subject. Sites were evaluated according to ease of navigation, authority, currency, relevance, and scope; cross-references are used throughout, including See and See Also pointers. The list of subjects covers everything from architecture to terrorism and counterterrorism, indexed at the end by entry name and subject. ... The topical information providers listed here could serve as a nice print analog to any library's online resource list. (Library Journal)

By covering such a wide range of subject areas in this publication the author intends to provide a valid starting-point for a wide range of researchers during the scoping stage of any new project. ... Paul R. Burden has produced a comprehensive resource that is recommended for public, school and academic libraries, especially those with a bias towards US research. ("American Reference Books Annual")

Paul R. Burden (Director of Library services at DeVry University, Tinley Park, Illinois, USA) has collated more than 4,200 web links into a single publication. The author’s intention is to present a collection of quality web sites to enable researchers to make more informed choices while collecting data on their chosen subject area. During the process of evaluating each resource Burden used five criteria; navigation, authority, currency, relevancy, and scope, in order to assess the resource’s overall legitimacy. Burden has produced a comprehensive resource that is recommended for public, school and academic libraries, especially those with a bias towards US research. ("American Reference Books Annual")
