— The Internet is not only convenient but allows everyone unprecedented access to valuable public databases. However, seeking out each and everyone can take a lot of time. And sorting through the various databases to find specific, relevant information can be even more daunting. We're here to help. The Free Press has introduced DataLink. We are compiling links to databases into a single location, eliminating hours of search-engine frustration. Free Press DataLink provides easy access to useful publicly available Web databases. These listings will grow -- both by updates from The Free Press staff and from your suggestions. Do you know of a great Web resource you'd like to share? Let us know by clicking here.
