Four Seriously Cool Information Resources

Our friend Gary Price has started a new series over at searchengineland on “incredibly useful online information resources that are most effectively searched using their own site search tools, rather than relying on general-purpose engines to surface their valuable content.” This looks to be a series worth following.

At least 3 of the 4 in his first entry should be of particular interest to government information specialists: the C-SPAN Video Library, Old Maps Online, and Archive-It. Gary’s comments are always useful. Did you know that, “unlike the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine, Archive-It collections are keyword searchable”?
