Keeping Up With the Profession
Tips for Keeping Up
- Make your first stop for "keeping up" Steven Bell's Keeping Up Web Site found at:
http://staff.philau.edu/bells/keepup. This site lists more than a hundred different sources for developing a well-rounded keeping up regimen that includes e-newsletters, web page change detection services, good web sites to monitor (using WPCD services), and of course, some blogs. The philosophy of this site is that to really keep up with librarianship you need to go outside the boundaries of traditional librarianship, which means keeping up with internet search, information technology, teaching and learning, and (for academic librarians) higher education.
