Foundation Directory online

We now have the Foundation Directory Online (sorry, in library only, not from home). Very useful! if your non-profit is looking for money. 700 funders listed in NJ alone. Can search by various geographies (town, state, congressional district), by areas of interest supported, etc. Stop by Reference and ask the librarians to log you in. Results can be downloaded as Excel spreadsheet, so bring a flash drive! (or, email the list to yourself from our workstations).

New for ebooks

Our ebook vendor, OverDrive, has announced a new way to read within your web browser. This should make ebook retrieval easier, less dependent upon which device (smartphone, tablet, desk top?) you're using. It's still under development for Nooks and Kindle fire but is ready to go for both Mac and Windows operating systems.
