Remember that subject directories are built and maintained by people, and are arranged by subject areas. They are sometimes annotated, and are a good source of information.

About.com: http://about.com/ - a commercial site, About.com is a good directory with many contributors. However, you will get pop-up ads, which is distracting

BUBL Link: http://bubl.ac.uk/link/index.html - a European directory, and a very good quality site. Worth looking at for a different approach!

DiscoverySchool.com: http://school.discovery.com/schrockguide/yp/iypdir.html -a list of some good subject directories

Infomine: http://infomine.ucr.edu/ - Over 30 university and college librarians have contributed to building INFOMINE. Hosted by University of California at Riverside.

Internet Public Library: http://www.ipl.org/ - a public service organization and a learning and teaching tool from the University of Michigan School of Information
