English abstract

Although established to facilitate access to significant Internet resources through the use of these and other established library organizational methods, CyberStacks(sm) (http://www.public.iastate.edu/~CYBERSTACKS/) has also served as a vehicle for exploring alternative approaches to managing and accessing Net resources. These investigations have included a study of other projects that have applied standard library practices to Web organization, a review of various methods of 'automated categorization' of Net resources, and an extensive survey of Information Visualization technologies and their potential application for enhancing access and use of Web and non-Web documents.
