Notes
Resources are ranked within each topic; the first listed is the most useful and the last the least useful, in my opinion. This is based on depth and breadth of content, quality of links, ease of use, organisational structure, and general appearance.

A resource ranked last may be a great resource for a limited audience, or it may be an OK resource that's meant for a large audience. I have not listed resources I found to be anything but great or good, except for national organisations. Suggestions are always welcomed.
