Friday Fun Link – Three Useful Sites (Jan 25, 2008)

One of the things I'm trying to do while on the road training branch librarians and the general public about the Internet and computers is to go beyond the usual suspects (Google, Wikipedia, Flickr and so on) to share some more obscure sites people might not have heard about but which are really interesting or useful. 

Here are three that accomplish that goal:

1. www.ratemds.com
– a site that allows anyone to provide feedback about their doctors, dentists and specialists

2.books.google.com
– the result of the Google project to digitize millions of books at various libraries around the world, it truly is a “card catalogue for the 21st century”

3.  www.soople.com
– a site that provides access to all of Google's various search options and other features via a single web page (well, three web pages if you use the tabs)
