Introduction to Researching
The Internet should be viewed as a bulletin board
containing everything from the most reliable to counterfeit
information. It is not a library of evaluated publications, but a
self publishing medium. Everything you are researching on the
internet must be analyzed for its usefulness.
When researching a topic on the Internet you should try out a
handful of sites. Try not to rely on only one site or one type of
When locating material on the Internet, there are three major
resources; the search engine, subject directory and deep web content
(originally coined Invisible Web). Depending on your query, one or
more of these services should be useful. Understanding the
differences will make your searches more productive.
For targeted, complex, and sometimes broad general queries, a search
engine may do the job for you.
When your query is general or research oriented and when you want to
view sites recommended by experts, you should use a specialty search
engine, subject directory or subject guide (Gateway Page).
When you are looking for non-textual information or for targeted
queries, try the deep (invisible) web.

The links below will take you to corporate, government and general
research sites. Some sites have research tutorials and advice on
specific aspects of research.
NASA Ames Research Center is located at Moffett Field,
California in the heart of "Silicon Valley". Ames was founded
December 20, 1939 as an aircraft research laboratory by the
National Advisory Committee on Aeronautics (NACA) and in 1958
became part of National Aeronautics and Space Administration
(NASA). Ames specializes in research geared toward creating new
knowledge and new technologies that span the spectrum of NASA
"President Bush may not believe it, but many scientists have
connected the warming of the Earth over the last century to the
burning of fossil fuels. Presented in a lively and entertaining
manner, the data on the site explores the issue of climate and
how human activity affects it. Start with a primer on what we
currently know about global climate change, then explore the
Earth's atmosphere, oceans, and areas covered by ice and snow.
You'll find data and analysis on everything from anomalies in
near-surface temperatures between 1961 and 2002, to case studies
on climate change and animal populations. Wonder where global
warming will take us? The global effects section offers various
scenarios of how climate change may affect our world."
AT&T Labs Research[New
AT&T Labs Research is one of the world’s premier research
institutions, dedicated to advancing the science and
technology of communications and information and to creating

as, Information Literacy and African American culture.
A comprehensive resource which includes a search engine for
thousands of educational resources.
"Our worldwide research labs work in all areas of information
technology, from physics and cognitive science to leading-edge
application research. We invent innovative materials and
structures and use them to create exciting machine designs and
architectures. We create tools and technologies that will enable
the continued evolution of computing and computing services over
the network. Our work across many disciplines is often done in
concert with our colleagues in academic and government research
centers, as well as "in the marketplace" with customers who
provide us with challenging research problems."
The Institute for Creation Research is a Christ focused Creation

including viruses, eubacteria (both pathogen's and
non-pathogen's, archae (the so-called third domain of life), and
eukaryotes (plants, animals, fungi and protists such as the
The Kootenay Research Centre was formed for the purpose of
conducting research in herbal medicine. This is AnandaCanada's
Research and Development site. In particular, the KRC is now

Cannabis are good sources of natural anti-viral compounds. The
centre's long range plans include other herbal medicines and
exploration of the medicinal properties of the local plants and
The Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) is the Navy's corporate
laboratory. NRL conducts a broadly-based multi disciplinary
program of scientific research and advanced technological
development directed toward maritime applications of new and
improved materials, techniques, equipment, system, and ocean,
atmospheric, and space sciences and related technologies.
The National Federation of Independent Business, is the largest
advocacy organization representing small and independent
businesses in Washington, D.C. and all 50 state capitals. NFIB

The National Research Council was organized by the National
Academy of Sciences in 1916 to associate the broad community of
science and technology with the Academy's purposes of further
knowledge and advising the federal government. Functioning in
accordance with general policies determined by the Academy, the
National Research Council has become the principal operating
agency of both the National Academy of Sciences and the National
Academy of Engineering in providing services to the government,
the public, and the scientific and engineering communities. The
National Research Council is administered jointly by both
Academies and the Institute of Medicine. Dr. Bruce M. Alberts is
the chairman of the National Research Council.
The United Kingdom's Natural Environment Research Council (NERC)
provides independent research and training in the environmental
sciences. Our mission is to gather and apply knowledge, improve
understanding and predict the behavior of the natural
environment and its resources.

"The list consists of journals that regularly publish
qualitative research papers or journals which are putting out
special issues or sections on qualitative research. They also
include requests from online data bases for textual material."
A news and reference portal, Researchville has expanded its
newspaper-search tool to offer search of more than 500 free U.S.
daily newspaper archives. A great tool.
