Resource Shelf = Da Bomb!

I don’t know when or if Gary Price actually sleeps, but I’m glad he doesn’t (or sddesn’t seem to, anyway.) His Resource Shelf website is one of the best things I’ve seen in online Libraryland in a long while. (Not that I get out that often but when I do, and I find something like this, it’s doubly cool.)

Price and his editors have made it their goal to seek out and report on every single reference source on every subject known to mankind, and make all these links available to poor time-starved slobs like you and me (well . . . okay, like me. I’m sure you are not a slob . . . and if, on the remote chance that you are a slob, I’m positive that you manage your time a helluva lot better than I manage mine. That’s probably why people are not coming up to you on the street, flashing shiny gold bages in your face, demanding answers to questions like "What’s Number 6 up to? We know you know, now tell us!") And if that’s not enough for you (and if it’s not, then what kind of freak are you anyway?), they have a weekly e-mail service that dumps the latest week of daily links and annotation into your mailbox every Thursday.

This is one of the best sites ever.

At any rate, I’m linking this site to the Library Resources typelist . . . NOW!
