Useful Links

NASA's ADS (Astrophysical Data System), an excellent way to search the literature.
XXX e-print archive (astro-ph). Most astronomy papers appear here first as preprints.
e-Journals: ApJ | AJ | MNRAS | A&A | PASP
Level 5, an Extragalactic Kowledgebase at NED.
Google: a good search engine.
Bibliofind, a good resource for finding used and out-of-print books. (This is where I got my own copy of Peebles's textbook.)
