- What is one source of library news that you check regularly to stay on top of the news (listserv, blog, professional magazine, scholarly journal, podcast, etc.)?
- What is one current library news item that has caught your attention recently?
I rely on weekly email updates from American Libraries Magazine and, as a student member of the American Library Association, I receive the print edition as well.
I follow accounts on Twitter and Facebook and am a member of groups on LinkedIn. To reduce traffic and isolate the library-relevant accounts, I “like” pages as my professional page on Facebook and curate lists on Twitter.
. In response to the second question, the news item that caught my attention concerns the threat of budget-based closures at my local public library.
This item is of double concern to me as a lifelong user/supporter of libraries, as well as an aspiring library professional. An open library benefits an entire community, including library employees and volunteers.
