As I have mentioned on here, I have been taking a few classes at the local community college. One of the unexpected benefits of being enrolled as a student is that I have access to the community college library. The physical library itself is fine, but what's really cool is that I have online access from home to all manner of databases, full text news articles, academic journals, even LexisNexis.
To subscribe to all of these services individually would be far more than the cost of taking a single class. It's a great benefit even though I don't really have the time or inclination to do much independent research. Maybe I'll start?
