One of the (many) emails I receive every day is from Library Link of the Day. I’ve found a lot of useful and just plain interesting items through this free email service. Of course, most of the time you actually have to follow the link to figure out what’s being highlighted on any given day, but it’s usually worth it.
The Library Link of the Day provides you a daily link for keeping up to date with the library profession. Destinations include the latest library news, good reads on the web, and other valuable resources that a library knowledge worker should know about. The link is presented without commentary. Links always lead to free content, but sometimes require registration (also free).
Here are a few things that have been spotlighted recently:
- Electronic Journal of Academic and Special Librarianship’s “Papa’s Got A Brand New (Virtual) Bag: Real-Time Chat and Reference Discourse.”
- For a little cash, you can sponsor part of a library. “In an effort to raise money for future library facilities and equipment, the Frisco Public Library Foundation — a nonprofit organization formed two years ago — is asking the city for the ability to sell the naming rights of the city’s library.”
