Subject:        Britannica Internet Guide

Regarding the recent discussion of refereed Shakespeare websites for
students... Encyclopedia Britannica has just set up the 'Britannica
Internet Guide' site which attempts to rate and list worthy websites on
various topics.  A search on 'Shakespeare' brought up some useful and
intelligent sites... might be a good starting point for students.

The 'BIG' is at:  http://www.ebig.com/

[Editor's Note: The other day under the heading Shakespeare Reference, I
posted to the membership this URL
<www.fivestarsupport.com/shakespeare.html>.  As Michael Best points out
to me this site is purely commercial and is merely advertising its
product.  Thus, as Cora Wolfe notes, there are no hypertext links.  I am
sorry if I inadvertently mislead anyone.  Do visit the site to find out
about the product, but do not expect the site to provide you with any
reference links.  The Britannica Internet Guide mentioned above is
genuinely a great place to do research on the Internet. Among similar
sites, I am fond of The Internet Research Pointer
<http://csbh.mhv.net/~rpproctor/IRP.html#I> and The Library of Congress
Tools <http://lcweb.loc.gov/global/search.html>.
