Websites on Issues Relating To Death & Dying The web can be as useful or meaningless as you want it to be. I have found it to be a wealth of resources when it comes to needing information on anything. I guess part of that depends on whether or not a person can decipher between sites that are credible, and sites that are not. I have compiled ten sites that I have either known about through my personal experience as an active member in the death care industry, or through using simple search engine words to obtain sites that would pique my interest.
In each web site description, I will mention what words I used in the search engine, if needed. I really didn’t know what to use for search words other than the very common words death, dying, and bereavement. I finally got to where I would go to websites that I didn’t particularly care for, but had found links to the ones I did like and find interesting and useful. I finally got a little bit more creative while browsing through the sites, giving me different ideas on different key words to use to give me variety in my search. I used AOL (who has keywords) and Google.

The website itself is a very interesting website. It is full of various information any where from aging to assisted suicide to pain management to Hospice. It has a lot of media resources, reports, & even scholarship information. web An Introduction to Death & Dying.
This website actually quotes quite a bit from our textbook, but I liked the ease of getting around on the website as well as the author calling it an ‘e-book’. It is very thorough in explaining things without overwhelming the reader. The author is Rev. Howard Go rle, BA, M. Div. , copyright 2002.
web This is a 1993 e-book that was published free (there is a more current version, for a price, of course) on the web.

I just typed in Near Death experience to come up with this. Lots of NDE’s in different languages, scientific reports, and even newsletters to subscribe to. The website is copy-written in 2003, by Kevin Williams. web way/ I actually found this website with the assistance of AOL’s search engine, under ‘death – news & media’.
It is a little outdated, last updated 2001, created by Dave Hill, but still I feel everyone needs a little humor for survival when it comes to death. I feel humor is a coping mechanism in death. In all, I think nine of the ten websites I found have very good information on death and dying. The last one, well, that’s kind of a website to let you know that humor can be found in death.
Knowing quite a bit about the death care industry, I feel it was quite easy for me to find valid and useful information and resources when I should need it. The professional organizations I feel are the best and most reliable for finding resources, research, or information on the subject of death and dying. Even though some of the other website I found were insightful, informative, and even entertaining.
