Featured Online Resource, Oct. 17

This week's Featured Online Resource is, a great tool for educators and more. Take your announcements, instructions, explanations and more and represent them visually in the form of cartoons.
Toondoo provides you with cartoon panels, a selection of characters, settings, props, etc., and you do the rest. You can put your resulting work out there with facebook or twitter, and can of course save your cartoons as image files and go from there. You are also given an account to store or display your toons--you can either keep them private and distribute them only as you wish, or make them available openly--there is a small community on other cartoonists who may comment on your creations.
Here's one discussing the uses of subject headings in research databases

Every week, the Ort Library brings you a new and outstanding resource from the Web or from one of the library's databases. To get an archive of all FOR entries, click here. Also, you can suggest a website that provides well-organized access to useful info.
