The Internet Index is a project that began several months ago
when we began to train staff on using the Internet. We observed
that people were frustrated because they couldn't locate
information on the Internet unless they knew where it was
located, and the address. The Internet Index is a Web page that
indexes information alphabetically and by subject, with links
that give immediate access to the information. The Internet
Index is different from any of the existing Internet search
utilities (like archie or the World Wide Web Worm) since it
provides immediate access to the source, whether the source
resides on a Web server, gopher, or ftp server.

The Internet Index has two components; an alphabetical index
(arranged by title), and a subject index. For example, if you
look under C in the alphabetical index, you would see an entry
for the Charter of the United Nations. If you click on that
link, the text of the Charter appears on your screen. (Under U
in the alphabetical index, there is an entry for the United
Nations as the author of this document). In the subject index,
the Charter of the United Nations is listed under Historic
Documents. Authors are listed in the Internet Index, but links
to documents are from titles in the Index.

Access to the Internet Index is free. SilverPlatter considers
this to be a way to enhance access to information. We want
people who use the Internet, including librarians, to contribute
sources to the Internet Index. We hope that the Internet Index
will become a tool, created by and for Internet users, that
enables anyone to easily locate information.

There is an entry for the Internet Index on SilverPlatter's Home
Page on our Web server. The URL is:

Instructions for submitting entries for the Internet Index are
included on the Internet Index Home Page.
