Some of the most current, "cutting edge" information is available from specialized research centers, associations and organizations. Most of these groups publish newsletters, newspapers, journals or reports that can be quite valuable. Since the focus of these groups is concentrated in one narrow area, their members usually have a great deal of expertise in that subject. For a comprehensive listing, you can consult the Associations Unlimited (also known as Encyclopedia of Associations), an annual directory of organizations arranged by subject. Each entry provides the organization's name, address, phone, size of membership, activities of the group, and a list of publications. [Available electronically via A-Z Databases or on WESTLAW(EOA)]
