Input welcome on NCDD’s Best-of-the-Best Resources page

I just updated our “Best-of-the-Best Resources” page in the NCDD Resource Center at www.ncdd.org/rc/best-of-the-best-resources.  What do you think of the page?  How would you improve this resource compilation?  What would you add or change?

Our Resource Center is designed to help people access over 2,500 resources about/for dialogue and deliberation — things like discussion guides, evaluation tools, reports, articles, books, videos, case studies, and D&D methods. This is one of a bunch of tools we created to help people make good use of the Resource Center, and all the great resources offered in our field.

Here are my two favorite segments:
