Instead of wandering all over the web using search engines and getting a mountain of good and bad sources of information that you have to sift through, why not use a directory or subject index that lists decent websites that have already been collected by reputable authorities?

Librarians and other professionals offer collections of good quality websites that are categorized in different ways. Use this faster way to find information without wading through lists and lists of search results from search engines.

Each piece, whether a Web Guide, a Beyond the Headlines story or a Netcetera article, receives the same meticulous research. The Web sites included in each piece are connected through original narrative, providing users with information on each site before they even click on it."
