(NOTE: these links have been gathered by the Library Staff as we have found them. We have given credit where credit could be obtained. Some of the sites are places we've visited and bookmarked like good reference librarians because they have good information, and some sites listed are ones that we have found that we liked as just plain folk. We welcome pointers from visitors! Aren't we all just looking for somewhere to go, anyway?)
