This page contains a list of useful websites for your use. My intention is to add to the list as I discover new sources that might be useful to you in your reading and research. If you find a website that you feel would be helpful to your fellow students, please e-mail me. If you are having problem with any of the webpages, please inform. Some websites have a subscription service, though I have tried to eliminate those from the list. My intention is not to have you pay for information. If you find a site completely inaccessable to non-payees, again, please inform.

My criteria: Websites must be sponsored by a college, reputable institution, or an expert in the field. Rule of thumb: No personal websites, no websites constructed as a classroom project, no general websites with no name of author or organization, no websites which promote hate. Serious suggestions please!
