Groups on the Web

The information you find on the Web is as varied as the people who put it there. Groups that publish information on the Web include:

Library of Congress

Libraries - The Library of Congress puts copies of important historical photographs and documents on their site called The American Memory Project. Kent Library spends a lot of money on subscriptions to quality resources--journals, indexes, and e-books--that it makes available on the library webpage.

Universities - Many universities offer online classes as well as provide space for faculty and students to produce Web pages.

U.S. Flag Government Agencies - In order to make information widely available, federal, state and local governments publish many documents on the Web. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) puts copies of tax forms on the Web.
United Nations Organizations - Organizations publish information about their purposes on the Web. For example, the American Lung Association educates about the dangers of smoking on its Web page.
McDonalds Companies - Many companies publish financial documents and press releases on their sites. They use the Web as a major marketing tool.
People People - With a computer, a mobile phone, or a tablet and an Internet connection, anyone, anywhere in the world, can publish Web pages, share photos, update blogs, or post status updates.
