Thomson Gale Acquires WEB FEET Database

Jun 01, 2004

Thomson Gale, a part of The Thomson Corporation, has acquired WEB FEET, a database of cross-curricular Web sites selected and reviewed by librarians, educators, and subject specialists. Established in 1996 by RockHill Communications, Inc., WEB FEET includes sites on hundreds of topics ranging from Shakespeare and dinosaurs to genealogy and auto repair. WEB FEET is available electronically as a Web database and as MARC records for library catalogs. WEB FEET uses an advisory board of selected experts to direct the editorial selection and evaluation process. It is fully annotated, new topics are added on a monthly basis while previous topics are reviewed to ensure their viability.
