Librarians' Index to the Internet (LII) is a searchable, annotated subject directory of more than 14,000 Internet resources selected and evaluated by librarians for their usefulness to users of public libraries. LII is used by both librarians and the general public as a reliable and efficient guide to Internet resources.

Excellent site for checking whether something you received in the e-mail is true or just a hoax. Barbara Mikkelson really does her homework and everything here is backed up by extensive research-
www.snopes.com...

The neat thing about this guide to internet sources is that every source INFOMINE cites includes an abstract indicates an intended audience. Great for reseachers who need online information-

"A free virtual library resource center for educators and students, librarians and their patrons, families, businesses and just about anyone exploring the Web for valuable research information."-
www.libraryspot.com...

This was the first "virtual" public library, run by the School of Information and Library Studies at the University of Michigan. Librarians and student assistants select and organize web resources into "traditional" library topical areas such as a Reference Centre, a Youth Resources section, a Reading Room, and more. The content is mostly American with some international resources. A collection of Internet subject guides available at the site also offers good starting points for research

Explains in detail pivotal ideological conepts-

Psyche's Links Esoteric Subjects on the Web 15000+ Links for General Reference and Esoteric Study Qabala and Related Material-

"If only I had known!" was the bitter cry of the searcher who relied just on search engines to search the Web. Although many popular search engines boast about their ability to index information on the Web, more of it (dynamically-generated pages, certain file formats, and information held within numerous databases) has become invisible to their searching spiders. Much of the Web is hiding information from us, but we can access this hidden content! Learn how you can reveal the secrets of these dark, hiding places."-

Gary Price, a librarian, has hosted The Resource Shelf online for years. It is truly a treasure trove of verified, free, and unique online sources. The only downside is that it takes 40 forevers to read each newsletter, because they find so much great stuff! Here it is:
