Africa south of the Sahara : selected internet resources / Prepared by Karen Fung for the Information and Communication Technology Group (ICTG), African Studies Association, USA.
[http://www-sul.stanford.edu/depts/ssrg/africa/guide.html]

This is a directory of websites that discuss or have to do with African Studies and Africa.  It’s quite extensive, and its data is arranged by country/region, as well as by topic.  Most of the websites I found in the directory were produced outside of the continent of Africa, but a significant minority were African-produced.  In particular, I thought the sections on maps and health were interesting. 

But Africa South of the Sahara‘s main value to me is that it covers many African topics and is kept reasonably current — I haven’t come across any other web-based resource on Africa that aims for this kind of comprehensiveness and is also relatively well-maintained.
