Use the Creative Commons infographic below to "sell' all the great stuff that's available AND FREE from the Library of Congress to your teachers of all subjects doing research. Especially our Social Studies partners! (See exciting Social Studies Chat announcement below!) I've added the infographic below AND links to the teachers resources as a link from our Research Resources Wikipage!

Easily the latest, greatest thing to visual learning is the Infographic. But, Infographics themselves are not so easy to create. Enter the free and still in beta site Easel.ly which pretty much lives up to its name! With a few slick template choices, text, objects, and shapes to add anyone can create a slick looking free Infographic that adds interest, meaning, and comprehension to text-heavy content. WARNING: But please don't become an Info-doofus - just because it's in an Infographic does NOT mean it's true...or relevant. Of course if you don't want to use this FREE site you can always pay upwards of $299 for a customized Infographic from 99Designs!

Back story: I regularly get emails with unsolicited suggestions for blog topics - it's sometimes truly flattering & informative and sometimes
But sometimes I get stuff that even though it's promoting or created by a commercial venture it's really so cool I gotta share it. This is one of those times! So, thanks BestCollegesOnline! But other marketers? Don't hold your breath - I can't be bought - I can be rented by inviting me to speak at your conference or consult with you...but not umm bought.

Below are pictures I took back in 2005 when our district Library Media Specialists went on a "field trip" to the Library of Congress! It was AWESOME!
