By Carole A. Lane; Foreword by Beth Givens
“This book is an excellent source for help in locating personal information. The organization of the chapters, appendices, and indexes makes it an easy tool to use.” —Journal of Government Information
"After reading the first section, I felt I had gained the foundation for understanding the limitations of both the searcher and the Internet. ... Explanations of the various
types of personal records are presented in a clear format with a description followed by one or more specific Websites and, in some cases, examples of searches that might result from searching the sites. ... Lane provides 'a reference guide to several thousand databases that can sometimes offer up exactly the information you need.' Naked in Cyberspace is a valuable guide that should be in public libraries; it also will be useful in academic libraries, particularly ones with criminal justice programs."
—-Serials Review 28/3(2003)
