This week I wanted to do something a little different for Further Questions, and have YOU the readers answer my question. Please leave a comment below to let us know:
Is there a particular publication (book, blog, column, magazine, journal, podcast, etc. etc.) that you regularly read for career advice? How did you hear about this resource and what makes it so valuable to you?
Here are two responses from people who hire librarians to get you started:
For a cataloguer Autocat is essential. RDA-L and Bibframe may be informative. I’ve been an Autocat reader so long I do not remember how I learned of it. I learned of RDA-L and Bibframe from Autocat.
- J. McRee (Mac) Elrod, Special Libraries Catalouging
I like American Libraries (from ALA) and Public Libraries (from PLA), more for ideas about new directions for libraries and for programming ideas rather than career advice. I always find myself dog-earing pages and saving ideas featured in the articles.
Also not necessarily career advice, but work-related: as a late-twentysomething trying to be fashionable in the workplace, I turn to blogs like Academichic (no new posting, but their archives are still helpful) for ideas about keeping my wardrobe fresh.

So how about you?
