I’ve mentioned this briefly in my Daily Links before, but I thought of reminding those who missed it. Last month, my ETC colleague Robin Sullivan referred me to a tip from Kevin Kelly’s Kool Tools on Getting Digital Library Cards. In essense, you can get cheap, or even free access to the digital media collection of your State’s public library. It’s your tax dollars at work.
Since I live in New York state, I applied for a New York Public Library card online and now I get free access to journal databases (JSTOR baby!), as well as downloadable audiobooks and videos! Heck, I don’t even live near any of their libraries yet I can get everything I want from them online.
