Here's the introduction to this document:
Internet-Accessible Library Catalogs and Databases is coauthored by Dr. Art St. George of the University of New Mexico and Dr. Ron Larsen of the University of Maryland. Dr. St. George says this document, "began as an effort to provide additional service to the network community locally. However, it became apparent that the library resources were of broader appeal than that." It contains a listing of over 100 online library catalogs and databases available within the United States and beyond. It contains listings of U.S. and international library catalogs and databases, dial-up libraries, Campus- Wide Online Information Systems, and bulletin board systems. Each listing gives a brief description of the resource and instructions on how to access it, as well as places to contact for more information. Listings include such material as Columbia University's online library catalog (CLIO), Pennsylvania State University's online card catalog system (PENpages), and the Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries (CARL) and its 25 individual resource listings of libraries and information databases, such as the Metro Denver Facts database. This catalog is an ongoing project. If you have any suggestions, comments, or additions, please send them to Dr. Art St. George by electronic mail to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.If you're at all interested in libraries on the network, this is a great place to start. If you just want to try one or two, here are a couple I use.
