This edition focuses on electronic resources, along with selected print reference sources, related to the non-profit sector in the United States. Many of the cited print resources are included in the reference collections of the Library of Congress. The Internet resources cited focus heavily on those maintained by U.S. government agencies and non-profit organizations and associations. Also included is a short section on how to search the Library of Congress print collections. All cited resources are in English. The guide is not meant to be comprehensive but rather to provide an annotated list of current practical resources to serve researchers who wish to learn more about nonprofit organizations or wish to start a nonprofit; students or employees who wish to work for a nonprofit; and businesspeople who wish to partner with a nonprofit.
