Meetings & Conventions: Short Cuts April 2000 Current Issue
April 2000

Hail, Britannica. In the search for facts and figures on the Web, the Encyclopedia Britannica's site (www.britannica.com) is a gold mine. A recent hunt for information on a destination returned articles in the encyclopedia, rankings of and links to Web sites featuring the destination, and magazine articles from as far back as 1997 that referred to the place, however obscurely. The site is a researcher's dream made real.

What the encyclopedia won't tell you... Want to visit the quirky side of the country? Roadside America (www.roadsideamerica.com) reviews such must-see side trips as the Angel Museum in Beloit, Wis., and the Space Farms Zoo & Museum in Beemerville, N.J. For Valentine's Day, the site covered the walk-through heart at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago and a heart made of rattlesnake rattles at the Dairy Queen in Ozona, Texas.
