Being subscribed to and keeping an eye on Statalist for new commands
is one useful option.

However, you need not be subscribed, you can search the archives of
Statalist for topics similar to your current area/topic of interest
and see what others have asked about on the list before, which should
lead to some useful avenues.

Searching the archives of the various Stata User Group Meetings (see is another avenue, as
are the Stata Technical Bulletin and the more recent Stata Journal
(most should be thrown up by -findit- though).
