Finding reputable Sources online.

Some useful subject directories can be found at:

  • Librarians’ Internet Index
    The Librarians’ Internet Index is compiled by a group of public librarians working out of California. Featuring only the highest quality content, the quality of annotations make this resource invaluable although the number of sites is relatively small (approx. 20,000)
  • Infomine
    Another site compiled by librarians, but this time those working within academic libraries. Many of the resources listed are available on a subscription basis so once you have found one that looks good, use the Curtin library database to access it.
  • About.com
    Compiled by ‘guides’ with varying levels of expertise on given subjects, this site can be a good launching point for more extensive searches.
  • Google Topics
    Not surprisingly Google has a subject directory which is categorised by volounteers for the Open Directory Project which aims to assemble “the largest human-edited directory on the web”.

Additionally, a number of sites exist that specifically search databases. You might wish to try Directsearch, invisible-net or Completeplanet.
