How do you keep up with news in the information industry? That is, news about *your* industry. Blogs, to be sure. Discussion lists are also a great place to see what's happening and read about what people think.
Here's another source: SLA's Information Center posts news items on the SLA website in the form of "News Connections." What's that? Well, we use Factiva and Nexcerpt to find and post articles, blog items, and reports on a wide range of topics that our members care about.
What's covered? Copyright, Web 2.0, knowledge management, competitive intelligence, search tools, information policy, the Internet, digital libraries, virtual library services, and vendor news. And anything else that makes sense.
You may not drop by everyday, but when you do, take a look at what's posted. You might learn something about blogging, your database vendor, or a new Pew Internet report.
