Electronics help. I'm looking for a good informational/tutorial web site for working with high power LEDs 5 Watts and up.

I want to build a UV light source using high power LEDs like these.
. I have a pretty good basic knowledge of electronics, and have built LED circuits with ordinary low power LEDs in the past. I'm looking for information about circuits, using drivers, multiple LEDs in a circuit, and heat sinks.
To head off any derails, yes, I know UV light is potentially harmful, so no humans or creatures will be exposed to it. And, yes, I've looked at other alternatives for UV light sources, but LEDs seem like an elegant solution for my application.
