Article excerpt


The membership of our association is quite broad in character. Members work for all kinds of organizations and research a vast array of subjects. A tool we can all use, regardless of our industry, is DocuTicker, a site that offers one-stop shopping for reports issued by governments, think tanks, and other organizations. Brought to you by the team responsible for ResourceShelf, featured in the December 2004 Web Sites Worth a Click column, the site (really a blog) is updated daily and can be browsed or searched.

You can join groups with similar interests (almost 500 members are librarians), chat with others, and search titles, authors, tags, and users. When you've finished organizing your bookshelves at home, try LibraryThing. It's fun!

These days, it seems to be much more a world of money and power (with the help of television and the Internet), and a lot of the commentary out there goes beyond game reportage to talk of salaries, steroids, and profitability. If that's the kind of thing you're interested in, this site is for you. Statistics abound, plus interviews, articles, and information on stadium renovations.
