Useful Resources for Library staff

There are so many resources to look at when one looks on the internet,which does not surprising me as there are many issues to discuss when a new and emerging way of communicating is introduced to the world at a very fast rate.

Here are six resources that I feel are noteworthy to library staff.

  1. A paper by Taylor and Francis Group in the UK, a great introductory resource.

2. This Book available in E-Book form or print.
