Mathematical societies:
American Mathematical Society - Founded in 1888 to further mathematical research and scholarship, the Web site, e-MATH, is currently divided into eight audience areas for members, authors, employment, meetings, what’s new in mathematics, government affairs, publications and research tools, and customer services. The site also contains electronic journals and the “MathSciNet” database, a searchable Web database providing access to Mathematical Reviews and Current Mathematical Publications from 1940 to the present.
National Council of Teachers of Mathematics - Online home of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.  It is especially useful  for students who plan to teach in K-12. ((Membership is required for full access, but student memberships are a very good deal).
Mathematical Association of America (MAA) - Hosts a set of electronic journals, employment opportunities, and meetings, as well as free book reviews and the Student and Student Chapter page, which provide links to student chapters that have Web sites.
Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) - Formed in 1952 to advance science and technology in industry. The site contains a professional opportunities area, conference highlights and a resources area containing TeX macro packages, information about mathematics in industry, and graduate programs.


EulerService: European Libraries and Electronic Resources in Mathematical Sciences - Provides a site for searching out mathematical resources, such as books, preprints, Web pages, abstracts, proceedings, serials, technical reports, and theses.
Penn State Mathematics Department - Robust offering of Web resources in the mathematical science.
Open Directory Project—Mathematics - Project’s goal is to produce the most comprehensive directory of the Web, by relying on a vast army of volunteer editors. The mathematics index is similar to the Yahoo! site in its presentation.
Yahoo! Science: Mathematics - Both browsable and searchable—a good place to find links to relevant resources.
Miscellaneous: ARXVI.ORG - Cornell University Library - Open access to 402,931 e-prints in Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science and Quantitative Biology.  - "...dedicated to providing revolutionary ways for students, parents, teachers, and everyone to learn math. Combining educationally sound principles with proprietary technology." (commercial site maintained by Encore Software Company)
Math Forum -
A leading center for mathematics and mathematics education on the Internet
Mathematics Genealogy Project - Intent of this project is to compile information about all the mathematicians of the world.
- Aim is to build a digital Library for classical mathematics on the Internet. This will consist of a complete electronic catalog of mathematical publications from 1868 to 1943 and a full-text archive that stores the most relevant publications from that period.
Preprint servers: Global Directory of Mathematics Preprint and e-Print Servers - Makes available to the mathematical community the current homepage URLs and e-mail contacts of all mathematical preprint and e-print servers throughout the world. This directory provides mathematicians with a tool to find any of these servers to browse the articles posted on them and, in many cases, to post an article to the server itself. The servers are divided into three categories: umbrella servers, which cover all areas of mathematics.
