This is a page I will update regularly.  This page is mostly blogs.   You can also see an older list of resources here that are not really blogs.

BU Library News sources for Management.  In addition, through Bucknell, you can access the VERY cool, very high quality collection called Global Issues in Context.  You need to be logged in to do so.

Also, Brody, our Info Maven from the Library, showed me the TV archive which has like all TV news archived.

Research and White Papers Site [BGS wiki] for this Class.


News and Commentary (You want REAL left-right difference without screaming nuts?  See these)

The Spectator (British one)


Indy Media Center (aggregator of REAL indy media)

National Review Online

Think Progress

Al Jazeera in English

Films for Action

Jordi’s Personal Libraries of Information

I keep several public collections of information.

Diigo is the most varied.  From politics to teaching to my taste for expensive and weird bookshelves, it is all there.

Pearltrees is a lovely, visual interface.  That collection is more “select” and has meta categories like TeachingResearch , and even more specific like Marcellus Schale (Fracking) where one other person teamed up with me to add links.

The Bucknell Library uses Worldcat.  It  has a public list feature.  I have place items there (books!) that looked relevant for some part of the class.
