Links to Pinterest
Recently, the response to a question on the SLRI list led to an amazing number of websites. Cheryl Space, MLIS and Youth Services Coordinator/Library Program Specialist at OLIS, has granted persmission for RILINK to link to the Pinterest board she created that archives all of the suggestions that were posted to the SLRI list. We thank her! We like the approach so much that both "Technology Trends" and "Using Online Tools and Apps" pages will soon be linked to Pinterest Boards as well. Please add any suggestions for the RILINK boards in Comments. Thanks!
