Review quote

"Keep this readily accessible on your office bookshelf." - School Librarian's Workshop "Many of the Websites included in this publication are great resources containing valuable information that is fully or partially unavailable through search engines... The Hidden Web does succeed in providing a number of educational and worthwhile research sources that many users are ignoring by relying solely on search engines." - ARBA "Each site appears in boldface type followed by the URL, with a description taken from the site itself in many instances. The conclusion reiterates the need for proficient search skills in order to find these hidden resources and that, in spite of what many students believe, Google is not the only way to find information. A bibliography and extensive index conclude this straightforward, accessible guide to exemplary research." - School Library Journal "This is a valuable tome for a web beginner or one who wishes to share some of the information it contains with others... Recommended." - Teacher Librarian
