(libraries) neat little current awareness tool  
I've recently signed up to The Informed Librarian Online a nifty (and free) current awareness tool. It's a monthly e-newsletter which provides links to the contents pages of various library and info science journals. It also links to the full-text or abstracts if they are available online. I've already found some useful articles I would have otherwise missed, like this one by Paul Miller from Ariadne, #35 providing some suggestions for incorporating RSS feeds into portals. Even without access to the full articles, I'm finding it a useful means of keeping up with what topics are being talked about in the literature. There's a good range of titles, too, from American Libraries and the International Journal of Library Management, to Ex Libris and the Resourceshelf, plus about 100 more.
