The Libraries section on Yahoo! Directory allows users to locate the websites for libraries falling under predefined categories. The categories are divided into "Top Categories" (Public, Academic, Business, Digital, Librarians, etc) and "Additional Categories" (Archives, Arts Libraries, Commercial Library Services, etc). When a user selects a category in Yahoo! Directory, they can then select subcategories of that category until the results selection is filtered to the narrowest possible category. Bread-crumb navigation is available under the main heading of each category, where users can navigate through the hierarchal order they've followed via links listed under the main heading (e.g. "Directory > Reference > Libraries > Public Libraries > By Region"). The hierarchal navigation through categories and lists of relevant websites under each category in Yahoo! Directory is similar to the format of Intellogist Resource Finder.

Categories under the Libraries section that might interest prior art searchers include:

  • Libraries > Digital Libraries > Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs)
  • Environmental Libraries
  • Government Documents
  • Intellectual Property Libraries
  • Law Libraries
  • Physics Libraries
  • Science Libraries
  • Transportation Libraries
