Yahoo! Cataloging the Web

Anne Callery
Cataloger
Yahoo! Inc.

The Internet has the potential to be the ultimate information resource, but it needs to be organized in order to be useful. I will discuss how Yahoo! is different from most web search engines, and how best to search for information on Yahoo! Libraries are forging ahead and beginning to catalog the Internet, but Yahoo! catalogs differently, not following traditional library procedures. I will explain why this is so, and demonstrate Yahoo!'s entire cataloging process. This presentation should be of interest to general users as well as catalogers.
