March Blog Spotlight: Library Stuff

The library weblog dedicated to resources for keeping current and professional development.

This blog is the creation of Steven M. Cohen (and is published by Information Today, Inc.). Library Stuff, not only offers information on professional development duties, but also posts current news items that include or affect libraries. These posts vary in terms of source...everything from the New York Times to the Online Athens is used. News posts provide the source of the article, as well as links to the original full-text for anyone interested in more than a brief synopsis.

Library Stuff is a great resource for any librarian. If you want to know what is going on in the world of librarianship, this is the blog to read.
