jumpstation

1. A Web jumpstation is an organized and annotated collection of external related links published within a Web site. For example, if you had a Web site about fishing, your compilation of hyperlinks to related fishing sites on the World Wide Web could be referred to as a fishing jumpstation. You will find that some may refer to this organized list of links as a springboard, but the two terms do have the same meaning.

2. "The JumpStation" was an early service for searching the Web, designed to search by document title and header but was not supported after the creator left the University.
