Other Libraries, Research Centers, and Websites

The information center of the 1994 Lillehammer Olympics was the first to make competition results available on the Internet. The Sydney 2000 Summer Olympics, 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, and the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin all have home pages on the World Wide Web. The available information, such as schedules and venues of events, ticket information, and suggestions for lodging, can vary daily and can increase greatly as the individual games approach. Other websites can be located using standard Internet search engines.
