IT Central Station – Unbiased Reviews from the Tech Community

IT Central Station – Unbiased Reviews from the Tech Community
https://www.itcentralstation.com/

While eating hummus and kebab in the Hell’s Kitchen section of New York City, Russell Rothstein and Naftali Marcus discussed what became the beginning of IT Central Station. Rothstein and Marcus teamed up to build a crowdsourced knowledge platform that helps technology decision makers around the world to better connect with peers and other independent experts who provide advice without vendor bias. With their diverse experience working in enterprise IT as well as in startups, the founders designed an online site that now operates like a Yelp or TripAdvisor for enterprise technology. IT Central Station has grown into a dynamic, real-time platform that offers user information that is current, objective, and relevant. It protects privacy in that users can either post anonymously to freely express their views or use their real names to promote their expertise. It enables knowledgeable experts, including real users and independent consultants, to share their expertise in a high quality community of decision makers. As a result, the community thrives as a valuable resource, ensuring that technology professionals get access to the right information and connect to the right people—for any topic, at any time. The Wall Street Journal calls us The Yelp for Enterprise Technology. Join the crowdsourcing revolution for enterprise tech at IT Central Station.

LLRX> A Quick Guide to Searching the Web
https://llrx.com/2018/09/a-quick-guide-to-searching-the-web/

Searching the web is a common experience and it is increasingly done using mobile applications, while still heavily relying on just one search engine for all search requirements. The goal of this short guide is to expand the scope of resources from which readers who are not necessarily highly proficient in web research can choose to conduct searches, as well as to engage in knowledge discovery. This article also explains alternative ways to search for information and additional methods to apply to your research to obtain more comprehensive and actionable results. This article is excerpted from Marcus P. Zillman’s 2019 Guide to Searching the Internet.

FRASER – Discover Economic History

FRASER – Discover Economic History
https://fraser.stlouisfed.org/

FRASER is a digital library of U.S. economic, financial, and banking history—particularly the history of the Federal Reserve System. Providing economic information and data to the public is an important mission for the St. Louis Fed started by former St. Louis Fed Research Director Homer Jones in 1958. FRASER began as a data preservation and accessibility project of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis in 2004 and now provides access to data and policy documents from the Federal Reserve System and many other institutions. Part of this mission includes seeking out a wide range of historical materials. For a detailed overview of the scope of the FRASER collection, see the Collection Development Policy or this list of highlighted content. In some cases, there are gaps in collections that we strive to fill. Our Needs List identifies the specific documents needed to complete collections already on FRASER, as well as materials we have not yet digitized but would like to. To better inform our users, our staff occasionally add digital material to FRASER from other sources such as the Internet Archive and the American Memory program of the Library of Congress in order to provide further context for materials digitized for FRASER. FRASER can be used in conjunction with other Federal Reserve resources, including FRED, ALFRED, the Federal Reserve History website, and curriculum materials developed by the Fed’s economic education staff. To connect the public to our free economic history materials, our staff also add links to FRASER resources from relevant Wikipedia pages. This will be added to Financial Sources Subject Tracer™.
