NET Gain No. 8: The NOICC Web Site (February 1997)

The March 1996 "NET Gain" was devoted to searching the Internet and said, "Although automated indexes certainly have their uses, they can't index concepts or organize resources on a given topic the way someone familiar with the topic can. Fortunately, there are many dedicated folks on the Net who devote significant amounts of time and energy to compiling guides to resources." For occupational information, the Web site of the National Occupational Information Coordinating Committee Web site at http://www.noicc.gov/ is a stellar example.
