Interesting Research Stuff
By Curt Davis - August 21, 2000 (From the Interesting Stuff Newsletter)

One of the best places to get help and find information is the library! The Librarians' Resource Centre is a selective collection of resources compiled to facilitate informational research and retrieval.

Seems like there are more and more truly great news and health sites everyday. NewsMax is a great collection of news sites.

NewsBlip is another great news site (a news search engine):

AlphaSearch will help you quickly narrow the vast amount of information available on the World Wide Web. Most of us have used the search engines (e.g., AltaVista ) that search the entire Web. They typically return thousands of documents, many of which are of questionable use. With this in mind, AlphaSearch realizes it would be much more efficient if you could locate a few sites (we call them gateways) that collect and organize web sites that center on a particular subject or idea has gathered into one place hundreds of these gateway sites.

TheAbsoluteSleuth is your One-Stop Place for Finders, Reference Materials and Valuable Information... If you need specific information, databases or reference materials from language translation tools to demographic information you'll find them at the Absolute Sleuth.

Student Advantage Research is your Academic Home on the Web with the tools you'll need to do efficient research online including: the Academic Search EngineTM - Search URLs in 25 academic disciplines; Query BuilderTM - Search using discipline categories & subcategories; Reference - Find answers quickly in standard reference sources and QNotes:

If you are looking for information about prescription drugs, the MEDLINE plus drug guide has a database of more than 9,000 prescription and over-the-counter medications provided by the United States Pharmacopeia. A great resource!

Nupedia is a new free, open content online general encyclopedia created by volunteer scholars from all over the world. It will be searchable, and also organized hierarchically and alphabetically. Nupedia wants the contents of the encyclopedia to receive the widest possible distribution.

Well, I guess that's about enough Interesting Stuff for now... :)
