The Internet is probably the greatest source of information for anyone, anarchists not the least. And the best reason to stay on the Internet is that it is virtually free.
There are a number of great anarchist sites available with different focus. Some are dogmatic and some have a rather respectful approach to differences within anarchism. Below are a number of sites which can serve as a starting point for the curious anarchist.
This links library is not at all comprehensive--there are a lot of good anarchist sites on the Internet not linked on this page. The reason those sites are not represented here is that their webmasters or owners do not consider Anarchism.net important enough to write a short introduction.
To add your own site below, please send the link with a short introduction to info[at]anarchism.net.

Voluntaryists are advocates of non-political, non-violent strategies to achieve a free society. We reject electoral politics, in theory and in practice, as incompatible with libertarian principles. Governments must cloak their actions in an aura of moral legitimacy in order to sustain their power, and political methods invariably strengthen that legitimacy. Voluntaryists seek instead to delegitimize the State through education, and we advocate withdrawal of the cooperation and tacit consent on which State power ultimately depends.
