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)
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.
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”.
