Make sure You are Reading the Keyword Blog

Dennis O'Connor maintains a Keyword Blog for the 21st Century Information Fluency project. The material on search patterns is illuminating.

You may want to enroll in the self-paced online course: Investigate Searching 20/10.

I also discovered the worthwhile article How to retool yourself--a roadmap of at least 16 ways by Joyce Valenza .

Once again, everything I find and share comes from following amazing educators/librarians on Twitter. If you haven't started to set up your Personal Learning Network using Twitter, there is no better time than now. Play with the basic Twitter interface for a week or two and then do yourself a favor and download the Tweetdeck when you are ready to get serious. This does URL shortening automatically and has other user friendly features. (see a previous post re: Tweetdeck).
