Though an enormous amount of information relating to earth sciences are available on the Internet, for a serious researcher, teacher, librarian or a student who has deadlines to meet, searching the Internet for specific scientific information can at times be frustrating. The main purpose of Online Databases and Other Internet Resources for Earth Science is to group these resources together and to provide the URLs and hyperlinks so a researcher, teacher or student can access them with the minimum effort, time and cost. The book also introduces the reader to a few basic concepts that propel the Internet and the world wide web so that he or she can make informed searches apart from assessing the quality and reliability of the data available on the internet. A brief introduction is provided on the current status of the draft treaty by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and the EU directive on copyright restrictions for scientific databases and what a researcher is permitted to do with the data obtained from the Internet, especially those from a commercial data provider. Earth science resources on the Internet are grouped into various categories: such as journals, databases, multimedia, directories, teaching aids and mailing lists Online earth science publications and a list of open access publications related to earth sciences The databases are further grouped into bibliographic data, specimen collection, chemical analysis, geophysical data, etc.

Geoscience data and collections (such as, rock and sediment cores, geophysical data, engineering records, and fossils) are necessary for industries to discover and develop domestic natural resources to fulfill the nation’s energy and mineral requirements and to improve the prediction of immediate and long term hazards, such as land slides, volcanic eruptions and global climate change. While the nation has assembled a wealth of geoscience data and collections, their utility remains incompletely tapped. Many could act as invaluable resources in the future but immediate action is needed if they are to remain available. Housing of and access to geoscience data and collections have become critical issues for industry, federal and state agencies, museums, and universities. Many resources are in imminent danger of being lost through mismanagement, neglect, or disposal. A striking 46 percent of the state geological surveys polled by the committee reported that there is no space available or they have refused to accept new material. In order to address these challenges, Geoscience Data and Collections offers a comprehensive strategy for managing geoscience data and collections in the United States.

Use the internet like a real spy. Untangling the Web is the National Security Agency's once-classified guide to finding information on the internet. From the basic to the advanced, this 650-page book offers a fascinating look at tricks the "real spies" use to uncover hidden (and not-so-hidden) information online. Chapters include: Google hacks Metasearch sites Custom search engines Maps & mapping Uncovering the invisible internet Beyond search engines: Specialized research tools Email lookups Finding people Researching companies A plain english guide to interworking Internet toolkits Finding ISPs Cybergeography Internet privacy and security ....and over a hundred more chapters. This quote from the authors hints at the investigative power of the techniques this book teaches: "Nothing I am going to describe to you is illegal, nor does it in any way involve accessing unauthorized data, [...but] involves using publicly available search engines to access publicly available information that almost certainly was not intended for public distribution." From search strings that will reveal secret documents from South Africa ("filetype: xls site: za confidential") to tracking down tables of Russian passwords ("filetype: xls site: ru login"), this is both an instructive and voyeuristic look at how the most powerful spy agency in the world uses Google.
