The WWW Virtual Library The VL is the oldest catalog of the web, started by Tim Berners-Lee, the creator of the web itself. Unlike commercial catalogs, it is run by a loose confederation of volunteers, who compile pages of key links for particular areas in which they are expert; even though it isn't the biggest index of the web, the VL pages are widely recognised as being amongst the highest-quality guides to particular sections of the web.

ALIWEB The way ALIWEB works is as follows:
1. People write descriptions of their services in a standard format into a file on the Web, by hand or using automatic tools.
2. They then tell ALIWEB about this file.
3. ALIWEB regularly retrieves all these files, and combines them into a searchable database.
4. Anybody can come and search this database from the Web.

Bess, the Internet RetrieveBess, the Internet Retriever.  The company is N2H2.  It was founded in June 1995 by husband-and-wife team Peter Nickerson and Holly Hill.  Dr. Nickerson, a former economics professor at Seattle University, and Ms. Hill, a civil rights attorney, created Bess due to their desire to make the Internet safer for their own children.
