There's a lot of information on the web about Sharepoint, but if you look more closely, a surprising amount of it relates to earlier iterations of the software. It can be very frustrating to find a site that seems to have the answer, only to discover that their complex workaround isn’t necessary because the feature is now available in the software at the press of a button.

For reliably up-to-date information, I use End User Sharepoint. They have an excellent e-newsletter and lots of insightful and practical articles on both the big-picture thinking and planning that ought to go into making a site and details on the building blocks that will go into it.
