Resources of the Week: (We Love) Lists & Rankings

Resources of the Week: (We Love) Lists & Rankings
By Shirl Kennedy, Senior Editor

Sometimes even we find it hard to believe that ResourceShelf is entering the eighth year of its existence. (My, how time flies when you're having fun.) Well, those of you who have been "around" as long as we have just might remember a venerable resource created and maintained by Gary, called Price's List of Lists. Its longtime curator, Trip Wyckoff, explains:

Price's List of Lists (LOL) was started around 1998 and maintained by Gary Price for many years. The LOL grew, and Gary's commitment to other projects and speaking engagements made the upkeep of the LOL impossible. In late 2000, Gary approached Trip Wycoff of Specialissues.com, about taking over the upkeep and expansion of the LOL. By 2002 the online database and structure to maintain and organize the LOL was in place and in October 2002 the LOL was transferred to Specialissues.com.

The List of Lists is a database of ranked listings of companies, people and resources freely available on the Internet. Content comes from a number of sources including: Specialissues.com, Gary Price's "ResourceShelf" and individual users of the LOL.

The LOL is organized by subject headings based on the two-digit 1997 U.S. NAICS Codes. There is hope to expand the subject headings to include more detail, but at this time these are only headings.

There is no formal "search function" for the LOL. However, one can search for content within each of the subject headings using your browser's "Find" function. There is also a masterlist of all magazines available in the LOL. The masterlist entry pulls all of a magazine's rankings from all of the different subject headings into one place.

So, thanks to Trip, Price's List of Lists lives on as a valuable resource. And we continue to post lists & rankings of interest both here on ResourceShelf and over on DocuTicker, our sister site. They just keep coming and people continue to find them useful. A few recent examples:
