Yet another MaryLaine Block read

From this librarian's perspective, MaryLaine Block's essays in Ex Libris are the most educational and entertaining reads for a professional librarian. I get her weekly Neat New (which also includes her Ex Libris column) via email. The Neat New portion (without the Ex Libris essay) is also available via an RSS feed at
The current Ex Libris essay, On Analyzing Web Sites, besides being a great primer on how to review a website encourages all librarians to analyze one of their prime reference resources -- their library's website.

From her Neat New section I find that Genie Tyburski has recently updated her excellent Evaluating the Quality of Information on the Internet. An hour or so spent reading through this material would be a great educational use of your time.
