Resource Roundup for Academic Librarians

Academic_Resource_blogIt’s been a few months since our first resource roundup for academic librarians—a list of blogs, articles, social media accounts and more, curated by BCC to make it easier for you to stay updated on library news and serve your campus community.

Today’s blog is dedicated to the latest resources we’ve found (and created ourselves)—to arm you with even more knowledge and tools to help you thrive.

When you want to advance your research…

  • Visit The Librarian Parlor, an awesome blog that provides tips on improving your research skills, finding book deals, getting the most out of conferences and much more—authored by a team of academic librarians dedicated to helping other librarians achieve their scholarly goals.
