If you have been on the web since the early 1990s, and consider yourself both computer and Internet literate, this is not for you, but the younger members of your compliance staff may benefit from  an NSA publication now unclassified. It is an extensive white paper entitled Untangling the Web: A Guide to Internet Research*, which I recommend for those whose Internet research exposure is not a broad as they would like it to be.

 Even some of the more experienced researchers may find some interesting resources that they were not aware of, in the 640 page white paper. The document does point out shortcomings and drawbacks of some of the sites, in a candid manner, which is useful, and a feature that does not exist on many commercial reviews of web resources. Much of the content may not be of interest to you, so use the table of contents for relevant chapters. Some of the material is dated, so update anything that you find of interest.
