Best of Reference Resource Mondays (2013)


Welp, this was met with great success last year, so I might as well do so once again: A round up of all the best links of 2013! Well, that I linked to for Reference Resource Mondays. But it’s not merely just your standard links: it’s hopefully stuff that can stand the test of time from when it was written. For example, last year’s stuff that I linked to still manage to be fairly useful today. That’s what I hope to accomplish for this one, and I hope for those who may not have caught those links the first time, to take some time to read these whenever you get the chance. So here you go!
