Internet Research

Theory & Practice

2nd Edition

McFarland Publishers Jefferson, N.C. April, 2001

This is a companion page to the book Internet Research, which is an expanded and updated revision of the first edition of 1998. Below are listed all the URLs mentioned in the 2nd Edition text. To the best of my ability, they are accurate and current, and so this page serves as a "virtual errata" page to the book.

NOTE: For further description, table of contents, and some sample chapters see the publisher's textbook page at http://www.mcfarlandpub.com/textbooks/fielden/
