Resources section - what goes in it? (1 Viewer)

I am contemplating having a Resources section on the main site, where it could be a directory of sites that would be useful to Microsoft Access users. Not sure if this concept is rather dated or not, or if it does provide value.

Any thoughts on this? If there was a Resources section, what should go in it?

Looking at the forum's current "Reference" section, I think that the only thing that COULD go there (that wouldn't be redundant) would be a list of links to the most commonly referenced external sites as e.g. the allenbrowne site or the microsoft.docs site.

The above may need reviewing to ensure they are up to date with current versions?
