There is a lot of really great content in the site and it's explained in a simple, easy to understand language. The only problem I have is that this is really text heavy and I think there are a lot of missed opportunites for a more visual presentation of content. When I saw the title flow of information I was expecting at least one info graphic demonstrating this flow. That being said I still recommend it because it's very comprehensive and a great resource for students and fellow librarians.
