Happy MLK Day….for those that get a day off.

One of the things as a new librarian at this time,  you would see is the abundance of information via print or electronic source materials.

Personally I get surrounded by news from the print and electronic – in deals with library publications. In terms of electronic news, I get to read tons and tons of it from my Google Reader, while in print I have subscriptions to Library Journal and American Libraries.

Still which is the more pertinent information source?

Getting surrounded by all these infromation pools,  can lead to moments of information overload, which I personally get a lot of….  but then how would you, as a library professional handle the input of all the news?
