Linking to off site sources

I am doing a county project. Is it okay to link to outside sources such as cemetery listings? I have a contact who has done bios on several people in a town's first cemetery. There is also local history museum that has a pretty good website. Is there anything I need special I need to know when I make links? I want to make this something genealogists will find the most useful. Ideas please.

What would you like to see on a county listing? Pics? Maps? If so what kind?

The internet is all about linking. Every profile on Wikitree has an example of how to do a link:  

Add links Help to anywhere on the web like this:

[https://www.familysearch.org/ FamilySearch]

So that format is [url name of website]

To make the links more useful to users, you can annotate them, much as you did in this post.  "A pretty good website"--well, you'll want to add more details about what makes it useful.
