What is a clearinghouse?
ˈkli(ə)riNGˌhous: an agency or organization that collects and distributes something, especially information.

Hope you will visit the Education Technology Clearinghouse from the Florida Center for Educational  Technology.   http://etc.usf.edu/  This is an excellent example of a clearinghouse.
They have collected a terrific amount of valuable sources. (clip art, lesson plans, maps and MORE!)
