Abstract (Document Summary)

As the new year opens, it's awards time, and they're not talking about trivial entertainment awards such as the Oscars, Grammys, and Emmys. It's more important to recognize good information sources, especially in the present age of search engine domination, when most people get their information from the first page of a Google search. This is the mission of the BUDDIE award, for Best Unknown Database, an Information Today tradition since 1989. There are three criteria for the database or Web site that wins a BUDDIE: 1. it has content that is of substantial importance or interest to large numbers of information users, 2. it is well-designed and maintained, and 3. it is unknown or, at least, less well-known than it deserves to be. The author is pleased to announce that the 2013 BUDDIE winner is thersa.org. This is the Web site for RSA which stands for the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce.
