Internet Gateways, Jumplists, & Specialized Link Collections

Gateways and jumplists are the buried treasure of the Web. These resources function like doorways to massive collections of information on a common theme. Once you find such a resource, your job is done. That's because you have let someone else do your legwork for you. Jumplists are massive collections of links on various aspects of a single subject. (This web site is essentially a jumplist on the topic of Internet research.) Although the two terms are often used interchangeably, gateways are often database-driven. They typically lead to a concentrated collection of information stored at one location, or branch out to a finite set of similar sites. The Internet abounds with gateways: to airports, schools, libraries, museums, hospitals, art galleries, corporations, government, and more. Below are some examples, along with tools for ferreting out these useful resources.
