Changing Patterns In Internet Research

I have just completed updating two sites
and have found in the process, methods
of doing research on the world wide web,
that have not been available in the past.

City Of Davis and Yolo County, California
(1) This site is  representative of any location
resource in the world.  It is now possible
to supplement local library systems with
Google Book search records, some being
fully available at home, in the public domain.

(2)  Local news, on an ongoing daily basis,
is available throughout the world, which will
usually include access to current obituaries.

(3)  Comprehensive information can be linked,
to include current record sources, information
on the past, as well as maintenance of family
friendly resources, to motivate youth groups.

(4)  Facebook resources are now pertinent,
in such areas as organizational contacts;
city sites and groups, alumni, etc.

Melvyl System - University of  California:
Worldwide Genealogy and Family History Research
(1)Library systems are becoming
more worldwide in scope.
WorldCat(dated 13 Feb 2010)
Search results for  "genealog*" limited to
Libraries Worldwide (WorldCat)
Results of about 656,700.
Results of about 14,371
for 'genealog" periodicals.

(2)Lists of Subject Headingsare words
and phrases used by  the Library of Congress,
University of California Libraries, WorldCat, etc.
. . .
Libraries of Congress Authorities gives
access to personal authors and creators,
including editors, performers, photographers,
artists, etc., as well asaccess togroup authors
and creators, including corporate  entities,
government bodies,conferences,
jurisdictions, etc.
