BI Blogs

Did you know that you can add "JSTOR" to your Google scholar search and be linked directly to JSTOR articles that we have access too? Or if it is an article we don't have access too, you will see a page from the article and a message asking you to check the library's print holdings or use ILL.

I don't know if those in reference will find this helpful or not. I found out about it from Taylor University's Z-Blog. A blog Taylor uses to pass on search strategies and other information. Another similar blog is being run by Trinity Western. I know there are several other schools with similar offerings. Anybody have a particular favorite?

I have no idea how many patrons actually consult these sort of blogs. My guess is that the more specific in scope the blog is, the more likely people will pay attention (for example a blog for Psychology students as opposed to just a general blog for everybody). But you front line reference people probably have a better sense of that than I.
