There are lots of
different types of resources on the World Wide
The Public Web
Includes all websites that are freely accessible to anyone with Internet access. These include such sites as search engines, news sites, entertainment websites, personal pages, as well as many websites produced by businesses, organizations, and governments.
As a whole the information available on the Public Web is not organized, reviewed, or permanent. Therefore, it is often NOT the best place to begin research. The Public Web is better utilized to gather quick facts, current news, or to connect to a libraryÂs electronic resources.
The Proprietary Web
Resources that are
on the internet but are not freely or openly accessible to the general
public. These resources require that fees be paid Â either by an
individual or a group before allowing access.
