Resources for cooking with seaweed?

Does anyone have a good resource for seaweed 101? We love snacking on nori sheets (but they can get expensive) and I'd love to make homemade miso soup, seaweed salad, and just incorporating various seaweeds in general into our diet, but I'm intimidated and not sure where to start!
