Acronym Finder, a web-based reference tool

Some sites offer value not in sophisticated technologies but in how people come together to share knowledge. One of those sites offers fast references to acronyms. Acronym Finder may be accessed at www.acronymfinder.com.

Acronym Finder website

This site verifies the acronym by asking those who are submitting acronyms to post a web address (URL) in which that acronym is defined the way it is submitted. It also asks those who submit acronyms to offer a contact e-mail.

This site is especially helpful for those who work in areas that have lots of acronyms:  public administration, government, and some “hard” sciences.
