Resources for Librarians

The following organizations and websites are concerned with areas of concern that most librarians will encounter at least once in their careers (if not once a day!). They have been divided up into general categories that best reflect their specific areas of content and concern.

However, it should be noted that many of these resources are large, multilayered websites and organizations, and that they will contain information on a broad array of subjects relating to librarians and/or library science. We have done our best to categorize them in a manner that makes their purposes clear and accessible. (Perhaps a librarian could help us organize them better!)
