The ceramics virtual library is part of the WWW Virtual Library, a network of online links pages for various subject areas. The ceramics virtual library draws together useful links, selected by ceramics experts. Links are annotated with brief details and are gathered into the following categories: ceramic arts; traditional ceramics (organised by geographic location); commercial technical ceramics (divided into advanced ceramic manufacturing/structural ceramics, piezoelectric and other functional ceramics, equipment); and non-commercial technical ceramics (organised by geographic location). In addition, there are links to other resources such as journals, societies, conferences and jobs. Subject coverage is wide, ranging from individual potters, galleries and small pottery companies, through ceramics manufacturers and suppliers, to university departments and research centres.
