Rack's Reference Library Plaque





                                                      Welcome to Rackster's Reference Library Page



Well after a year of promises, here it is, the much longed for reference page! Included below, are links to reference sites of all types! Everything from FedEx's package tracking page to the AMA's website. In the future, I will place new links I find that seem to be good reference sources either for trivia games, or for whatever reason you may be researching a subject and need a place to start. As always, TheRack continues to find a place to keep his cyberstuff, cause those of you that know him, know he never wants to throw anything away! Even if he will most likely never ship via FedEx, he has their website's link -- just incase!
