The American Society for Quality site (www.asq.org) is very helpful for quality professionals. There is a dictionary, an extensive bookstore, and a listing of training courses. There are also articles to help you with quality issues. If you become a member, many additional resources are available, such as helpful articles that deal with everyday work issues and a monthly magazine. You can also join divisions that are geared to specific areas such as software or statistics.
The U.S. government's official Web site (www.firstgov.gov) covers all official U.S. government transactions, services, and information. There are links to all state Web sites, FDA, USDA, and other government sites. Being in the medical industry, which is regulated by FDA, this is a great benefit since all of the government regulations can be found there, along with guidance documents. Much of the government information that companies sell can be found on FDA's Web site for free.
American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM; www.astm.org) is one of the largest voluntary standards development organizations.
