Best Of Reference Resource Mondays (2012)


In a quiet world, I would be doing something tangible with my time as opposed to doing something as crazy as identifying the 27 best links of 2012. But I live in a very loud, demanding world, so of course I have to do something as crazy as this to stick out. I think.

Anyways, there was a lot of great content that I linked to for RRM this year that ultimately held its own when it came to being useful and somewhat relevant. The point is to link to the best from this year. Let’s just say this took a while to decide, and move on. Hopefully you’ll think these posts are pretty relevant as well!

  1. Slowly going through all of these. Some very interesting articles too. I’m definitely checking out these blogs too. I might add some to my reader. Although that may cause me to be even slower with reading blog posts. xD
