Check out this interesting website:


A simple layout with Craigslist-like simple links to tons of resources for librarians and would-be librarians, from listserv recommendations, to library associations, to links for APA and MLA citation advice, this is a great one stop shop, rather than googling (or other searching) each type of library question independently.

This is a site which would be great to have shortlisted on one’s bookmark toolbar. I’m definitely going to Stumble this one!
