Search Engines

Search engines scan pages on the Internet for keywords. You supply the keywords. No single search engine reaches every corner of the Internet, so try another if you are not satisfied with your results. If you search on a multiple-word key (such as Japanese kite festivals), documents that contain all the keywords will appear first.

Discussion Groups

People from around the world form virtual communities on the Internet to discuss topics of shared interest. Virtual communities have formed to discuss various health conditions. These groups of people, actively seeking education and perspective on a particular health condition, often share information about Internet sites that offer resources on that condition.

You can view and post to a newsgroup discussion using your web browser. You must subscribe to a mail list. Mail list postings will come directly to your e-mail box. Web forums are discussions that are posted on a web site. You can add your comments using a submission form at the web site hosting the discussion.
