Overview

Find what you’re looking for with the best Internet resources for academic research in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences!

Which academic resource deserves more of your budget: printed books and journals or softly glowing terminals?

This comprehensive book examines the usability of the Internet as a scholarly research and reference tool. Each chapter provides a snapshot of Internet information access and usability in a specific subject area, comparing it to traditional print media.
