Description: This article discusses the deep web and new tools for searching it. The networked information environment is broad and deep. It includes websites, documents, databases, library catalogs, images, organizations, and much more. While users travel this landscape using a variety of tools, a common component is a Web browser that interacts with resources. A key challenge is understanding the limits and capabilities of tools that make visible the wealth of resources in this networked environment. This article will introduce the concept of the deep or invisible Web, provide some directory resources to deep Web content, and describe the Library of Texas (LOT) resource discovery service.
