Over the past month and a half there has been a bit of a gap in new content on the EMERAC blog and website. On September 23rd I got married, and was out of the country for a few weeks following that. Starting in November, the EMERAC will be blog will be back up and running with with regular biweekly updates. I am planning some new posts on topics I am very excited to share with readers. In the coming months I plan to write about intellectual freedom and censorship, explore a few venues that change the way information is shared and spread, as well as introduce you to a few information professionals who have nontraditional careers.

While I am working to develop new content for you, I’ll share a few articles and links relative to the ever-changing information profession that I think might be of interest:

Many libraries can be a destination all on their own, regardless of whether you’re planning to use their resources. Check out some of these remarkable libraries worthy of anyone’s bucket list:
