Part 2

I ASKED:  If you know of a resource of any kind that your found
INVALUABLE for you/your school as you first went on-line,
please let me know.  It might also be helpful if you briefly
mentioned how or why you rate it so highly.

Here are the edited responses:
The following guides are invaluable.  You might call for prices,
