Tip: Let the scouts do the work for you.


For many years, librarians at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have been compiling and indexing the Internet’s best sites to make life easier for all of us. Here is how they describe their work:

“Since 1994, the Scout Project has focused on developing better tools and services for finding, filtering, and presenting online information and metadata.

“Located on the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s campus, and part of the University’s College of Letters and Sciences, Scout has access to highly educated content specialists and a world-class array of computer science and library resources. Our eclectic staff blends academics and professionals from Library Science and Computer Science, along with graduate and undergraduate students studying the sciences, social sciences and humanities.”

At the Scout Project website, you can subscribe to the Scout Report for periodic e-mail updates on cool Web sources. You can also search the extensive archives by keyword or browse by Library of Congress subject headings. Don’t miss it!
