"Deep Web Research 2008" on LLRX

What are you missing on the Internet?

Marcus P. Zillman, M.S., A.M.H.A., Executive Director of the
Virtual Private Library and an Internet expert, brings us
up to date on researching the "Deep Web," i.e., files and
formats that search engines on the Internet don't retrieve
through usual searching techniques. According to
Zillman, the Deep Web covers somewhere in the vicinity
of 900 billion pages of information compared to about
20 billion pages accessible through traditional search

Deep Research 2008 is "designed to give you the resources
you need to better understand the history of the deep web
research, as well as various classified resources that allow
you to search through the currently available web to find
those key sources of information nuggets only found by
understanding how to search the "deep web".

The list of resources is extensive. Faculty may be
