Like the concept of the site. always glad to have reviews/ summaries of long documents. would also find a ‘cliff notes’ to regular publications that we dont’ have time to read useful; i.e. ODI papers, Forced Migration, Foreign Policy Review etc.

Great to have a place to highlight and summarize important articles in this day and age of information overload!

Comment by Kathy Fry

Brilliant! As a librarian I handled large quantities of digital and print resources. I appreciated some wise suggestions on what to read in the mass of options. Target your specific audience rather than risk trying to be the everyman distiller; with perhaps a suggestion on who specifically in your audience would find the info most helpful (such as a job title or responsibilities).

Thanks RK for the comment about target audiences. I think you are right – we can’t expect that every article will be useful for every person

Diane – point well taken about summarizing articles from HPN etc. On the list of things to do for future editions.

I must admit that it took me a little while to figure out that Anna and Nick had put this thing together! When I first had read the piece on effective meetings from a recent globe, I thought it was a link to an existing site. Only now am I understanding. Wow, I’m impressed. Looks like a great start and I will keep checking it out as there’s some interesting things on here. I’ll post more specific comments in the future. Right now I’m just grasping the idea. Cheers, Sarah
