WHAT IS A METASITE?

Metasites are pages about other sites. They arrange information and link to other web resources on a specific topic. They are time-savers because the metasite creator has already scoured the web, evaluates sites, and provided descriptions and links only to sites that meet the criteria for the metasite. When created by professors and librarians, this generally means linking to sites that are content-rich from an academic perspective.

This tutorial will use the webpage "International Women's Conferences, Concerns, and Resources," a section of the University of Wisconsin System Women's Studies Librarian's site, as the metasite example. However, since it is not always the case that you will have a metasite in hand, the first part of this tutorial discusses how to find a metasite.
