A virtual library is a set of Web pages which
contain substantial numbers of links to Internet
resources organized via subject categories created
by someone familiar with the topic. In a sense,
this type of virtual library is really an
intelligently designed "links library" or "links
index" that has been organized and compiled by
subject experts or people intensely interested in a
field. The intent is to guide searchers to
carefully selected resources. These pages are vital
to both beginning and advanced searchers. They
reflect the personal biases of their creator(s) and
range from the very frivolous to the fanatical,
with a great many valuable resources in between.
The downside is that there may not be a page on the
topic you are interested in.
