It is relatively easy to find a list of dotted letters in Torah. Even a good tikkun kore will list them.

However, it's harder to find a list of these in Nakh. Where can I find that resource? Alternatively, where are they?

It's a shame that the Mesorah is no longer printed in most Tanachs as it was in the past. This particular question is answered by the short Mesorah on Bamidbar 3:39 where it says י' נקודות בתורה. The long Mesorah on the same verse elaborates on where the 10 dots are. It says that there are 10 in the Torah and another 5 in Nach as follows: Torah- Bereishis 16:5, 19:33, 18:9, 33:4, 37:12; Bamidbar 3:39, 9:10, 21:30, 29:15; Devarim 29:28. Nach- Shmuel2 19:20; Yechezkel 41:20; Yeshaia 44:9; Yechezkel 46:22; Tehilim 27:13


Torah Sh'lemah has a list in parshat Tzav. מאיר עיני סופרים has one as do some editions of tanakh including one of the Breuer/Aleppo editions (Horeb?).

Source: Any given table in my yeshiva was likely to have a dozen different tanakhs on it with at least one containing any table or map you were looking for at the moment.
