How to Use Tools:  Subject Directories

Subject Directories - Directories organize Web sites by categories and subjects.

DIRECTORIES are best used for: browsing for subjects and for finding quality Web sites.

People who develop subject directories decide in which category a Web site should be listed. Since directories are built and maintained by people, directories include far fewer Web sites than search engines. However, directories are the best place to begin browsing on a subject, and most directories focus on including quality Web sites in their results.

Search Tip

When using a directory's keyword search option, look at the subject categories your search finds for you. They will give you more ideas on your topic.
