are designed to help TelosNet users cut through the daunting lists of sites
to the essential offerings on the Web in key areas of personal growth and therapy.
Although it's difficult (and inherently unfair) to rate Web Sites, guidance is provided in
the form of ratings in three categories on a five-point scale. (See How to Interpret OMEGAview Ratings.)
We've culled through the Internet's offerings and tried to focus on only those
which in our view offer the highest interest and value. While some sites are commercial,
most are dedicated to providing free, on-line content that you can use right away. Wherever
possible (or desirable), we'll provide a link that takes you directly to the content of a
site, bypassing introductory material.
- How much useful content is provided, appropriate to the site's focus. For
example, a bibliography would be expected to list a lot of books, but not a lot of actual
articles. A Web site on a new or obscure area with relatively little information would not
be expected to be big.
Quality - Our subjective assessment of the quality of information
provided: its significance, relevance, accuracy, etc.
- How easy the site is to use, its layout, aesthetic qualities, and the quality of the
online experience it provides. A very simple site can get a high score if it's very easy
- Terrific. A "Must
- Excellent Site in This Category
- Good. Great If You've Got Time . . .
- Fair. Might Deserve a Quick Visit
- Poor. Serious Shortcomings in This Rating
NOTE: Normally, sites with more than two scores below 3 Omegas will not be
included in the listings.
