Interesting things of the week #3

Librarians’ Web Finds post from Everyday Web Finds has this wonderful quote “Librarians are dedicated to the service of sharing information with their patrons. They are passionate about books and comfortable with “magazines, newspapers, audio and video recordings, maps, photographs, archives, databases, and the internet in general.” When the internet became popular, librarians were among the first to jump on the bandwagon. They work to provide high quality and up-to-date answers to library users and those who do research online. This is why some of my favorite websites are authored by librarians.”
