Please note: There were many high-quality resources in the areas covered by the presenters in the 2004 Organizers SIG Pre-Conference.  For this bibliography, I limited my list to books published from 2000 to the present, which are likely to be accessible in the collections of public libraries or available by interlibrary loan. Some are accompanied by information on CD-ROMs and diskettes. Strengths of specific resources and useful websites were discussed during the pre-conference.
