Finding Digital Resources

Earlier tools for finding resources on the Internet included programs like Archie, Veronica, and Jughead, owing to the eccentricities of the programmers who developed them. A popular analogy during those years was that the Internet was like a used book store -- after an earthquake. Today's tools make the Internet appear, at least, to be more organized. There are essentially three main tools or categories of tools that you can use to find digital resources on the Internet. They are: Topic-Oriented Directories, Search Engines, and NetSmarts -- or becoming Netwise
