Web Reference Library

The Internet is a marvelous resource for a lot of reference information that was otherwise available only from a wide variety of disparate sources. This page includes some of the more useful and interesting resources I've found. Common meds online resources like maps and phone number lookups have been left out just because there are lots of choices.
