The Internet Scout Project

The Internet Scout Project is sponsored by the National Science Foundation to provide timely information to the education community about valuable Internet resources. Daily and weekly updates are offered for K-12 and higher education faculty, staff, and students, as well as interested members of the general public.

Every day professional librarians, educators, and content specialists filter hundreds of announcements looking for the most valuable and authoritative resources available online. Information about the best of what we've found is then summarized, organized, and provided to the Internet community in various formats, including email and the Web.

Our fundamental <selection> criteria include:

  • Content
  • Authority
  • Information maintenance
  • Presentation
  • Availability
  • Cost

Published continuously for over three years, the Scout Report is one of the Internet's oldest and most respected publications. (...) Internet Scout's two flagship services, The Scout Report and Net-happenings, both celebrated anniversaries recently: the Scout Report has been published (almost) every week for the past four years, while Net-happenings has been published daily on a regular basis for the past five years.

The Internet Scout Project is located in the Computer Sciences Department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

    The target audience of the Scout Report for Social Sciences is faculty, students, staff, and librarians in the social sciences. Each biweekly issue offers a selective collection of Internet resources covering topics in the field that have been chosen by librarians and content specialists in the given area of study. The Report is divided into two parts, site annotation, and current awareness, although there may be some overlap between the two.

    Site annotations are organized in thematic areas of research, learning resources, and professional and general interest. Selected current awareness resources are provided in the areas of publication resources (books, journals, technical reports, and other reports), conference and meeting announcements and calls for papers, grant announcements, and updated data sets, among others.
