Resources for Library & Information Technology students
This is a new section (Jan, 2007). Feel free to add whatever content and links may be of use to anyone studying in the field of Library & Information Technology, whether towards a Masters of Library Science or a certificate program. As the section grows, then the information can be better organized. But don't worry too much about categorization, etc. initially. --C.B.
