Gateways and Search Methods
Though there is no "central authority" on the Internet, there are several attempts to organize the material so that potential information seekers like yourselves can locate what you're looking for.
- Yahoo: One of the best gateways to the Internet. It offers information in a number of broad categories, such as Business and Economy, Arts, and News; it offers constantly updated news headlines from Reuters, and a handy search engine to locate material indexed in its catalog. And if it doesn't find anything, it will even offer you a chance to link to other search engines, such as those listed below
- Lycos: One of the largest and most useful searches of the Internet.
- Alta Vista: Another great search engine.
- Webcrawler: Not as big as the others, but as a result, you may not have to sift through as many dead-ends.
Here are just a few of the magazines you can locate on the Web:
