for disability information on the 'Net? These meta sites are
extensive collections of links to other online disability resources.
Most of them are very well organized and/or provide easy-to-use
search engines. Even though we think that The
DRM WebWatcher is the best place to start, other meta sites
may be better suited to your needs. For more information about
meta sites, see our guide to finding disability
information on the Internet.
- Cornucopia of Disability Information
by the University of Buffalo, this is an extensive but somewhat
uneven guide to online resources in various categories, such
as aging, assistive technology, bibliographic info, children,
college, employment, government documents, hearing impairments,
statistics, and traveling.
- DAWWN (Disability Advocacy
Work With Networking)
- A pretty
good list of disability links, arranged by broad category. The
brief annotations are helpful.
- disABILITY Information
and Resources (Jim Lubin)
- A truly
massive compilation of links: if there's a disability site on
the Internet, Jim Lubin has probably found it. An effort is made
to organize the sites thematically, but it is not entirely successful.
A search engine facilitates access.
- The Family Village
- A "global
community that integrates information, resources, and communication
opportunities on the Internet for persons with mental retardation
and other disabilities, their families, and those that provide
them services and supports." The "village" features
a library, coffee shop, hospital, shopping mall, post office,
house of worship, school, recreation & leisure, community
center, bookstore, and university. Check The
Library for the extensive collection of links.
note: while still an excellent resource, this site does not appear
to have been updated since 1999.
- Health & Disability
- An extensive
meta site, alphabetical by topic, from the British-based Ability
organization. Unfortunately, there appears to be little or no
selection criteria, and many of the listings are not disability-related.
- Untangling the Web
- An extensive
list of links from the West Virginia Rehabilitation Research
& Training Center, broadly arranged by subject. We've had
occasional difficulty accessing the overly long page and some
of the links.
