More on the resource pages.

We’ve loosely divided the resources pages into two broad categories:

  • Online Resources and Blog Posts on This Site – Web sites with resources of note and Blog posts from this site. Categories in the drop-down on the right side of this page are prefaced with RES.
  • Downloads and Samples – Downloads, usually in a PDF format that you can select and check out using your shopping cart. When you’re logged in you’ll be able to see a history of your downloads. Categories in the drop-down on the right side of this page are prefaced with DL.

Strategies for organizing content can sometimes end up like the shared drive. This is our current strategy for organizing these resources and as more are added, you’ll find that the search, in addition to the specific resource pages will become more useful for you. If you are looking for something and just can’t find it, feel free to ask.
