“Our mission is to bring users the best information on the Web for any topic, employing human insight and methodical review.
FindingDulcinea presents only credible, high-quality and trustworthy Web sites, saving time for the novice and the experienced user alike.  Each piece, whether a Web Guide, a Beyond the Headlines story or a Netcetera article, receives the same meticulous research.  The Web sites included in each piece are connected through original narrative, providing users with information on each site before they even click on it.

Mark E. Moran started findingDulcinea in September, 2006, to help Internet users quickly and easily find the best, most credible Web sites. Web search is becoming increasingly difficult for even the savviest of users. Sometimes the site that answers a user’s question is buried on the tenth, not the first, page of search results. Other times, a site that looks like it offers objective information is actually sponsored by a company who wants to direct you to purchase a specific product or service. Mark felt that the best way to cut through the clutter of dubious, useless information was to develop an Internet Librarian: a virtual version of the librarian who helped find the best books in the library for any topic when you were a kid.”
