The internet compendium : subject guides to social sciences, business, and law resources by Louis Rosenfeld( Book )

25 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The process of Internet resource discovery and evaluation is extremely difficult due to low quality of information, constant changes, and primitive searching tools. The subject-oriented resource guides presented in this book make independent resource discovery and evaluation possible, and serve as reference sources to enable users to maximize use of the Internet and its information. Instead of providing long and general lists of all known Gophers, Usenet newsgroups, or World Wide Web servers like many other books do, this guide describes and evaluates the Internet's resources by subject, so readers with a specific area of interest will find relevant Internet resources assembled in a single, easy-to-use chapter. Parts I and ii offer instruction in various Internet skills: Internet addresses; clients and servers; navigating tools and resources; communicating with individuals and groups; searching for files to ftp (Archie); searching for Gopher resources (Veronica); Wide Area Information Servers (wais); building your own subject-oriented guide; and the Clearinghouse for Subject-Oriented Internet Resource Guides. Part iii provides 18 subject-specific guides in various topics in business and the social sciences such as: archaeology, German history, Latin American studies, law, operations research, and women's studies.

The book enables readers to explore thousands of finding guides in subject areas such as: book discussions and reviews; film and video resources; popular music; theater and performance studies; architecture and building/construction; environmental conservation; Christian, Buddhist, Tibetan, and other religious studies resources; the occult and mysticism; and journalism.

Information is provided on everything the novice Internet user needs to know to get started: navigating traditionally with Telnet; ftp (File Transfer Protocol); ways of efficiently searching with Gopher, World Wide Web; and looking for information with Archie, Veronica, Jumpstation, and wais (Wide Area Information Servers).
