The World Wide Web is expanding at a rapid pace. This progressive growth has inevitably created a proliferation of sites and information sources that are posted on this medium. Jim Millhorn attempts to examine a small corner of this undergrowth in Student's Companion to the World Wide Web by focusing on outstanding academic and scholarly sites for students in the social sciences and humanities. While the Web is an invaluable source of information, students do not always know how to extract the information that they seek. This guide can offer assistance. This book expertly handles common reference sources, search engines, meta-subject guides, the humanities, and social science disciplines, which are arranged in an alphabetized sequence of chapters featuring each individual discipline. An innovative and timely answer to the student's quest for information, this book opens the broadest purview the Web offers on a specific discipline while simultaneously limiting the number of featured sites.
