"Research is the process of going up alleys to see if they are blind."
-- Marsten Bates, 1967
Actually, the "neat stuff" I had in mind is a little different. Librarians have been very busy for some time accumulating and linking their own brand of "neat stuff" on the Net. As you will soon discover, these are well-organized, subject-based collections of materials and pointers to other related materials to help you quickly and easily find and retrieve the information you need. Some of them I've already cited and many may already be familiar to you; others will be new. Regardless, they all deserve a first, if not a second, "look-see."
As Mansfield Cybrarian says in his introduction to the Mansfield Virtual Library:
"The best way to look at Internet resources is through the focus of specific needs. Otherwise, you can spend a lifetime drifting through archipelagos of fascinating but ultimately fruitless links. The ultimate purpose of this page is to save you time by locating what a team of information professionals consider to be the best the Web has to offer scholars at the moment."
