Here at iBraryGuy, we know what it is like to be constantly bombarded with news. Between the news feeds that we read regularly to the constant Twitter and Facebook updates that we follow, it sometimes seems that just keeping our fingers on the pulse of what is happening could be a full time job! We also know that most of you are facing that same real time onslaught. You too know the pain of information overload! So we are hoping to help alleviate your burden a little bit.
In addition to our blog and Twitter feed (@ibraryguy), we recently unveiled two new services that are designed to bring you the best of news and social media as it pertains to what you do. The Daily INFOrmant is our regular eNewsletter for librarians and information professionals of all stripes. Powered by Paper.li technology, this handsome newsletter can be delivered to your e-mail inbox each day. Using the Scoop.it! platform, we have also just rolled out our new Legal Information Dispatch. This one is focused on our colleagues in the legal industry. Currently, you can follow it via Scoop.it! or RSS. Soon, it will be released as a monthly eMagazine.
Both The Daily INFOrmant and The Legal Information Dispatch are free. We do our best to curate the content and the sources and each is constantly being tweaked to provide the best and most relevant coverage possible. We sort it and feed it, so that you do not have to! With The Legal Information Dispatch, you even get our own insights and commentary on the news items, as well as the chance to add your own.
We welcome your thoughts and suggestions and hope that you will not only make use of these services, but share them your colleagues as well.
