Here are some Web sites that I have enjoyed visiting and would like to
recommend. They relate to both my professional and personal interests.
For higher education information technology materials on the web, I find the
web site to be a tremendous resource.
College and University Home Pages, etc.
The University of Texas at Austin maintains two very useful sites. One
provides you with a directory of
US college and university homepages, and the other, called the
World Lecture Hall,
contains many links (from accounting to zoology) to Web pages created by
Bryn Dole's excellent
will lead you to a myriad of useful cycling pages.
Another recommended site, specifically covering mountain biking,
If you play collegiate lacrosse, or are a fan of the sport, these three web
sites will provide accurate, up-to-date information: College Lacrosse
USA, the US Women's Lacrosse
Association Home Page, and the NCAA Home
Libraries and Museums
The Library of Congress homepage is a
wonderful place to start exploring the rich library-related offerings available
on the Web. Here you'll find links to LC's information system, congressional
information via the THOMAS system, virtual exhibits, HTML guides and editing
systems, and much more.
A few of my favorite WWW museum sites are the Smithsonian Institution, National
Museum of Natural History, the
Museum, the Franklin Institute Science Museum,
and last but not least, the
Philadelphia Museum of Art.
MG- the Classic Marque! As a proud owner of a '72 MGB Roadster, the MG Cars Enthusiasts' Club Web page is
one of great interest and use to me.
Music and Radio
As a fan of "new contemporary folk music," I rely heavily upon folkmusic.org for providing
information and pointers to folk-related Web information.
Keep up to date on what's happening at National
Public Radio by visiting their Web site.
Musi-Cal is a free,
searchable database that provides access to worldwide live music information.
National and World News
Recommended: CNN's WORLD and U.S. news Web sites.
Care to take a virtual tour of Philadelphia's historic districts? Looking for
information on the cultural offerings of the City of Brotherly Love? Hungry,
and in need of some information on good restaurants in town? If so, check out
Philadelphia Online is also an excellent
source for information on Philadelphia, the surrounding suburbs, and southern
New Jersey. Here, you will find online versions of the _Daily News_, and the
_Philadelphia Inquirer_, and information about local restaurants, business,
job opportunities, sports, and the arts.
If it's information on local weather you are seeking, the NBC News
Intellicast site is a great source for
Searching the WWW
Two traditional search engines I recommend are Yahoo,
Yahoo can also be utilized as a "current awareness" system.
What's New on Yahoo lists newly added
Web sites, while Weekly Picks will
lead you to some of the "best sites" added each week. Here, you can also
subscribe to a Yahoo information service that will automatically send you
periodic announcements of new Web sites.
A "next-generation" Internet directory that is also very powerful is LookSmart.
