More on the Internet; but first: NAICS! (But what is NAICS?):

NAICS is an acronym for the North American Industry Classification System, the new industry codes developed with Canada and Mexico as a part of NAFTA. NAICS replaces the SIC (Standard Industrial Classification) codes, last revised in 1987. The NAICS code can extend up to 6 digits instead of the SIC 4-digit limit. The University Library has a new "NAICS manual":

North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Replacing Standard Industrial Classification Manual (SIC) On January 1, 1997 (Ref HF 1042 N677 1996 Business Table #2). The NAICS manual has tables comparing NAICS and SIC codes as well as alphabetical lists of both systems. A new version of the NAICS manual is scheduled to appear late in 1997.
