Whittaker's Holiday Websurfing

Whittaker admits that 'he' wondered what to share with you today after the holidays.  So, rather like Alistair Cooke's Letters from America, here are Whittaker's Postcards from Cyberspace:-

  • The Scottish Book Trust promotes Scottish literature - well worth a look, if you're interested in what's up and coming in the world of books.
  • The Scottish Music Centre is another vital link for musicians, but have you ever explored their Membership Schemes?  Make that a New Year's Resolution, maybe!
  • Edinburgh University Library's 'special collections' department is now called the Centre for Research Collections.  If you're researching historical Scottish music sources, it's an essential port of call.  Find out more here.
  • 'Whittaker' heard about a new social media website, RebelMouse, which aggregates your activities across a wide variety of platforms.  A bit like, but you might like to experiment with it to see if it suits you.  Here's mine - and all I did was set up my account!  The rest is done for you.
