The emphasis throughout is on the location of high quality sociology Internet related resources likely to be useful for learning, teaching and research, from among the billions of publicly accessible Web pages.

In addition to extensive coverage of topics relating to the efficient location of files and Web sites, Part III provides a substantial and annotated list of high quality resources likely to be of use to students of sociology.
