The Glossarist is "a searchable directory of glossaries and topical dictionaries." Obvious enough. Topic areas are arranged in a Yahoo-like structure.

xrefer.com has a fabulous list of searchable dictionaries & encyclopedias. At least I was pretty damn impressed by some of the information that popped up from a source like The Encyclopaedia of the Renaissance.
