This site could put me out of business, but its so wonderful I have to share. The Internet Public Library truly has something wonderful for visitors of all ages. I especially enjoy the enticing, colorful KidSpace section. In addition to KidSpace, the website features a TeenSpace section. The site is full of resources, such as, special collections, reference materiels, reading rooms and more. The Internet Public Library is a public service organization and a learning/teaching environment at the University of Michigan School of Information.

This site boasts that you can ask Dr. Universe almost anything--and visitors to the site really make them meet that challenge. Dr. Universe is willing to go Washington State University's great team of researchers for her information. She'll follow them out to the field, or into the laboratory or library, to find your answers. If you'd like to contact any of the faculty members who have answered questions for Dr. Universe about their research, scholarship or creative work, just e-mail the Dr. and she'll put you in touch with the person behind the answer! Ask Dr. Universe also links to a great selection of favorite links; it is unusual for a site to actually link to sites that might provide real competition. That says a little something about the quality of the website--they're not worried. Ask Dr. Universe is brought to you by University Relations at Washington State University and is made possible through generous support from Microsoft Corporation.
