Enlaces muy jugosos

Siempre dije (y sigo diciendo) que el dia que Internet deje de sorprenderme, será el día en que me deje de gustar mi trabajo...
A través del tiempo he acumulado gran cantida de "favoritos" que de una u otra forma he intentado ordenar y mantener (aunque luego no se exactamente en que carpeta los he incluído) y de vez en cuanto me gusta navegar por ellos y "redescubrir páginas de las que ya no me acordaba....o que hacia tiempo que no visitaba". Eso es lo que hice ayer por la noche....y la verdad es que hay algunos enlaces que merecen la pena.

IWR Information World Review
"Published by Learned Information Europe Ltd., part of the multinational VNU Group. The online version of the print copy was freshly launched during Summer 1999. The Internet Developments column only gives brief snippets of information. However, the Search Insider column is more expansive and worth visiting for its news and discussion on web search topics. Current issue articles are available for free, however archival material does require a subscription, so be sure to visit for each monthly issue if you don't have a subscription"

Library Juice
Library Juice (ISSN 1544-9378) was an irregular, weekly, then biweekly, then, for a moment, monthly electronic zine for librarians, library and information science students, and other interested people, published between January, 1998 and August, 2005. It included discussions, commentary, announcements, humor, web links and news affecting the library world. Much of the material was about librarianship as the servant and protector of the public sphere; intellectual freedom and social responsibility as central to the profession. Library Juice was not a discussion list but a digest of material from a variety of sources. Much of the material came from individual contributors.
In March of 2006, Library Juice was revived in the form of a blog, at: http://libraryjuicepress.com/blog/.

Berkeley Digital Library SunSITE
Many universities maintain extensive web sites, usually incorporating tutorials on finding information on the web, plus their own compilations of useful resources. University of California Library at Berkeley is one of the best such sites, with excellent tutorials on the finding of information on the Internet, plus an extensive listing of further resources for information retrieval. Finding Information on the Internet: A Tutorial gives an introduction to the Internet and the Web, tips on search strategies and instruction in the features of a number of search tools that it considers to be the biggest and the best. Its listing of web search tools and resources is divided into subject directories, subject guides, databases and virtual reference libraries.
The Berkeley Digital Library SunSITE is a resource giving access to its database of digital collections, while also linking to external digital collections. The Librarians' Index to the Internet (see abstract ) is a searchable annotated directory selected and evaluated by librarians and is hosted at the Digital Library SunSITE
