The Problems With Searching the Deep Web
by Nancy K. Herther
For more than 20 years, researchers have worked to conceptualize methods for making web searching more comprehensive--going beyond the surface sites that are easily accessed by today's search engines to truly create a system of universal access to the world's knowledge. The task is proving to be far more complicated than computer scientists had thought. "The existing approaches," notes one recent analysis, "lack [the ability] to efficiently locate the deep web which is hidden behind the surface web."

Weekly News Digests
FCC Will Vote on Net Neutrality in December
According to an article by Todd Shields in Bloomberg Politics, in December 2017, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) "is planning a vote to kill Obama-era rules demanding fair treatment of web traffic and may decide to vacate the regulations altogether."
ALA Pledges Support for Net Neutrality
Jim Neal, current ALA president, released a statement on the proposed Net Neutrality order by Ajit Pai, the FCC chairman.
Net Neutrality: Good for Consumers?
Roslyn Layton writes the following in InsideSources: "Even before the FCC officially released the [Net Neutrality] item, ... left-leaning skeptics have portended doom. But many of their egregious statements can't withstand the truth test. It's time to take a hard look at the facts."
Internet Companies Weigh In on Net Neutrality
BBC News' Technology division gathered the following statements on Net Neutrality from stakeholder companies.
Net Neutrality Rollback: A Gift to ISPs?
Steven Salzberg writes in Forbes that Pai's Net Neutrality elimination plan "is a bigger gift to Verizon than anything he's ever done before."
Net Neutrality as a Market, Not Government, Regulation
The Washington Examiner's Opinion section has an article about Net Neutrality that states the following: "Net neutrality's dubious value is made obvious by the misleading way Democrats and many news outlets reported the decision. 'F.C.C. plans net neutrality repeal in a victory for telecoms,' wrote the New York Times. Missing from the headline or lede was that the decision was a loss for Netflix, Amazon, Google, and other corporate giants that [provide] content."
