There is a mailing list, TAG-L@VM1.NoDak.EDU, which I've found to
be an excellent resource for information.

There is a USENET news group, K12.ED.TAG.

ERIC runs a clearinghouse for Gifted & Talented, but so far as I
know, they are not yet on-line.  AskERIC will, however, forward
questions to the clearinghouse.

I've started installing a Gifted & Talented Resource Gopher here
at the University of Minnesota, which you can find at
GOPHER.COLED.UMN.EDU, choose menus \Education Resources\Gifted & Talented

(If anyone knows of any Gifted resources they'd like to see added to
this Gopher, please send me a message!)
