BUDDIE welcomes the new millennium
Who will win this year's Best Unknown Database Award?
by Mick O'Leary
DATABASE REVIEW column presents the 2000 BUDDIE award for the Best
Unknown Database. Lists the three criteria for the award as having
high-quality content, covering important topics of widespread
interest and importance, and being less well-known than its worth
and interest merit. Gives the award to Policy.com produced by
VoxCap.com of Chicago, IL (312). Relates that the heart of
Policy.com is the Issues Library, a collection of links to several
thousand documents from hundreds of Web sites, with both basic and
advanced search capabilities. Describes departments that also make
the site a policy news service, including Top Policy News, Daily
Briefings, "In the Tanks," and Policy Calendar. Notes that the
advertising presence is modest and unobtrusive. Calls it a unique
and valuable information resource and an outstanding BUDDIE winner.
