Some resources provided by the Internet Public Library include lists of educational links on topics such as entertainment, health and government. However, the Internet Public Library is no longer being updated as of 2015 and is considered shut down.
The Internet Public Library was a project founded in 1995. It sought to provide a user experience similar to a brick-and-mortar library, using links to online content as its primary material. The project also had on-call reference services accessible via the Web and professional services for librarians.
While, as of December 2015, the website's lists of links are still accessible, no professional services or on-call reference services are now provided, as the site is no longer maintained. The project ended in 2015, after announcing its closure the previous year. Because the resources at the website are no longer being updated, users should not count on them to be reliable.
