Overview

Journalists and writers face a common set of problems—how to research, find and investigate topics that can be written about. The Web is a multi-dimensionary repository but it can require specialized tools to locate and develop this information. Public records, vital records, research portals, Freedom of Information documents, guides to investigative work and Internet resources for writers and journalists are scattered in a lot of locations—in fact I have found 110 specific ones!

These are listed and discussed by topic name, description and hyperlink in the book. One reference tool alone can make the difference in success or failure in developing a book and completing a book. This is a Writer's Intelligence Guide to Internet Resources. It is equally useful for journalists and reporters.

I've included as a bonus a NSA Guide to the Internet—that's right—a link to a PDF copy of a National Security Agency Guide which was only unclassified this year. It's an invaluable reference tool and is Link # 111. It's a sprawling document, clocking in at over 650 pages, and is the product of many years of research and updating by a NSA information specialist whose name is redacted on the official release. This Tool of 111 Essential Resources is essential for every writer's library!
