Useful Links

Stop Googling! This page contains some fantastic on-line resources, which will leave you bookmarking and printing out Web pages for weeks. Want to cut down on some time and go directly to the hot stuff? With the exception of "Associations/Member Organizations" and "Copyright & the Law" (for obvious reasons), links marked with a "star symbol" are sites that I would highly recommend before all others.
