Yesterday we talked about the Deep Web and the inability of major search engines to search it. Today one of the major databases able to penetrate the Invisible Web ( Deep Web)Librarian's Internet Index(LII)announces that they will merge with Internet Public Library(IPL), a famous site hosted by Drexel University and maintained by few other colleges.
…As you may know, in the last two years LII's funding was cut by 50%. Consequently, we had to reduce the number of sites we add each week, halt improvements to the browsing structure, and generally do less of everything. IPL will give LII's years of work continued life and value and we think they'll do a terrific job. The LII editorial staff and the newsletter will continue through April 30, 2009
For those readers that are not librarians I will strongly propose that you spent some time with the top-notch resources of LII and IPL and check our previous posts about Librarian's Internet Index.
