We concur with the views of Demas, McDonald and Lawrence that discrete Internet resources should serve as the units to be identified and described within a virtual library collection:
	"... [T]itle by title selection of high quality
	resources is one of the most important values 
	librarians can add in providing access to information 
	resources, including those accessible via the Internet.
	A careful selection of resources is the touchstone of
	the electronic library"(Demas, McDonald and Lawrence,
