Quotation excerpt at beginning of this posting is from Bell's article:  
"Keeping Up: Using E-Resources for a Personalized PD Program," Educause Quarterly V.26, N.3, Fall 2003.

 How can we share more effectively ....  
  • Resources to which faculty, students and other academic professionals already have access?  
  • Resources for which the incremental usage costs are negligible in money, technology, learning curve, time?
 How can we engage like-minded professionals who have relevant expertise and experience - who are painfully familiar with these needs and willing to share ideas and resources? What do librarians recommend for more effective finding, browsing, research, sharing of such resources?  Who else can help?
