Librarian Chick!

Hello, and welcome to Librarian Chick!

This a list of free resources for students and educators… and anyone else who’s hip to learning. Feel free to click away! Though many of these resources could be listed under multiple categories, I’ve only added them once so you can CTRL+Click all links to open in tabs and never open the same page twice.

This is one of those self-evidently useful sites, full of information gathered from 6 years of software reviewing at TuCows huge shareware website. The Library Chick herself says it’s “a list of free resources for students and educators… and anyone else who’s hip to learning.”

She also points to FOSSwiki (a site for Freeware and Open Source Software) and her blog, “She Dreams in Digital.” As if that were not enough, she includes Librarian Chick Learning Center’(“search for free educational information, sites, games and software online!”), and Librarian Chick | Book Search (a tool to search for free ebooks).

About Ray Watkins

I was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, at Our Lady of the Lake Hospital. I grew up in Houston, as a part of what we only half-jokingly call the Cajun Diaspora. At a certain point during the Regan administration, I had to leave, so I served in the Peace Corps, Philippines, from 1987-89. I didn't want to return to the United States just yet, so I moved to Paris, France, where I lived for three years or so. I then moved back to Austin, Texas, where I had received my Masters Degree, and (eventually) began a Ph.D., which I completed in 1999. I spent a year at Temple University and then accepted a position at Eastern Illinois University where I worked until May of 2006. I now work exclusively on line (although that may change) for Johns Hopkins, the Art Institute Online, and I can be reached most easily via email: raywatkins [that 'at' symbol]
