Internet Gateways

The web is an important source of information, but a lot of the content should be treated with caution. A good place to begin your search is with the Library's own list of Internet Gateways. These Gateways provide access to a wide range of web pages that have been evaluated and identified as appropriate for use by students in Higher Education. The page also contains links for three of the major Internet Search Engines, if you wish to conduct your own searches using these resources, please view the Library's guide on how to search and evaluate the information on the web.

Although the gateways page includes resources specifically aimed at the individual faculties, please see below for list of recommended sites for your subject. Alternatively, you might want to view a copy of the following short booklet from INTUTE that provide details of some of the most useful Internet resources available for Chemistry:
