Why Use Web Directories?

    Web Directories (also referred to as lists, catalogs, or indexes):

  • Commonly select and organize Web sites with teams of human selectors not Web robots
  • Arrange Web sites into categories and sub-categories that many people find intuitive and easy to navigate
  • Can include reviews and/or ratings of sites they index
  • Can focus more exclusively on scholarly Web sites more appropriate for college level research (use Locate Reviewed Sources to use locate examples of scholarly Web directories)
