SotoZen-net :A very large site with much useful information. Here you can find the  semi-annually newsletter Dharma Eye, which unfortunately is not index but you can access pdf versions from 1997; videos on various topics; an extensive library; a list of Zen temples "Soto zen temples outside Japan, temples in Japan where foriegners can do Zazen, and venerable temples in Japan that we think would be a great pleces to tour." There is more but you'll have to go to the site and browse.
