The Internet, and user demand for information from the Internet, grows and expands at a phenomenal rate, daily. As academic publishing trends change and stability comes to resources already present on the Web, libraries will find more and more useful Internet resources that they want to connect their users to. The OPAC already serves as a central finding tool for much of a library's intellectual holdings, and can perform the same function for a library's Internet "holdings" as well. While the prospect of "cataloging the Internet" seems daunting at first, developing a staged approach for integrating Internet resources into the OPAC can provide libraries with valuable experience for deciding how to best harness this growing body of knowledge. A logical first stage is the cataloging of a library's own Web pages.
