Environmental Scanning for Librarians

Librarians should keep up with new trends in society and technology, so that we can plan for the future.

Here are some good blogs for environmental scanning:

Docuticker - new research studies and statistics on everything
Teleread - what is new with ebooks and ebook readers
Massively - all the news about virtual worlds (like Second Life) and massive multiplayer online games (mmos)
GigaOm - general technology news
Mashable- social networking news
Read Write Web - web technology news
