    • Project Bartleby at Columbia University -- another resource for on-line texts, with nifty word-for-the-day and quotation features. Inviting interface for browsing Harvard Classics, the World Fact Book, various compendiums of quotations -- and more

    • For cool searching, go to Dogpile, which turns on a number of search engines at once. Powerful results! If you want to try just one search engine, point your browser to Google, because it may be the most current encyclopedia of the chaos known as the Web. It also has some category indices, similar to Yahoo.
    • LibWeb lists over 6100 library Web pages from more than 100 countries.
