Do you need that quick link for relevant information without all those other meaningless sites?  will give you that.

Many different kinds of standard groups have now been defined.  We have assigned the
different types of standards into 12 groups.  Accounting, Banking, Credit, H.R., Investing,  Legal,
Medical, Networking, Professional, Shipping, Shop/Trade, Sports, and Teaching.  Each one of
these groups have links to their particular field.  Working with individuals in each of these
fields, we have taken their recommendation to link to these sites.  

To help with navigation, all the connecting sites not only have links to that category but
thumbnail images to quickly identify which link to request.  For example, more than just a link,
like , also shows a thumbnailed link:
