Thanks go to Spring Cornelison for assistance in compiling the follow list of organizations

Hints for using these pages:  I'd suggest that you click on the link you think may be helpful to you.  Then find the "about us" page so you can read a bit about the organization to see if they address the issues you are interested in exploring.  Then find their search engine for the pages and proceed to use the keywords that will help you find material on their pages that will be of interest to you.

Collect that material to review later.  You can save the material to disc or e-mail yourself.  I don't recommend printing a whole lot on your first time through as you may end up giving lots of material to the recycle bin unnecessarily.  

One thing I always try to be careful not to do is to stray too many links away from the original starting point.  This helps me stay on track, and prevents too much surfing that often leads to distractions.  As always I am ready and willing to assist you in enhancing your search capabilities.
