Specialty Sites and Directories for Country Information

TIP

Of course you can do this same kind of search on Yahoo or any other searchable subject index. I've found that the Open Directory Project works for me in the searches I do for international information; you might find that Yahoo suits you better. To each his own.


Though Yahoo and other subject indexes are good, I prefer the Open Directory Project at http://www.dmoz.com for my country searching. Start your search there by searching for the name of the country and then narrowing your search down by category. For example, I might want information on health issues in South Korea. Searching for "South Korea" health would bring me some results, but there's no guarantee that a thematic keyword and the name of the country would find useful results. On the other hand, searching for South Korea immediately brings a pointer to South Korean–oriented categories, and from there you may “drill down” to a set of health-related categories.
