Fashion Librarians’ Resource Guide-update

flrg

Greetings colleagues!

A recent review of the FTC SIG Fashion Librarians’ Resource Guide user statistics shows that the resource is still being well used.  In the last year, there have been nearly 900 “hits.”  (Hurray!)

One issue of concern, however, is the content box on fashion blogs which is woefully outdated.  I’ve suppressed the content box from public view for now.  If there’s an outcry or if anyone would care to edit and update it, please let me know!

Any other suggestions from academic librarians for the guide’s improvement will be greatly appreciated.

  2. For Nicole and everyone – Please enter your suggestions via this reply box so they’re all in one place when it’s time for me to make the updates. Also feel free to suggest which blog links should be eliminated from the guide. (No doubt we’ve listed blogs that were influential a few years ago but haven’t stood the test of time.) Thanks!

  3. This is wonderful news! I could send you a couple of fashion blog recommendations for the guide if you would like. Would you like me to email them to you?
