Subject Directories

DMOZ Open Directory Project is an example of a subject directory. Subject directories are collections of Web sites that people have selected and organized.

They have arranged selected websites into subject catagories and sub-categories.

Sometimes links are annotated so that you'll know before clicking on it what a site contains.

Many subject directories, such as Yahoo!, also have a search engine function.

The quality of sites in a subject directory is usually good

Best for browsing and topics that are broad or general.

You may have to click through categories and subcategories.
