Welcome to Biblio-Connecting: July/Aug 2021



My Personal Reference Websites


When I surf the web, I frequently bookmark the articles and websites that I find interesting.  Some of the websites have appeared in the Found on the Web section of my Biblio-Connecting blog posts.  A few websites, however, are no longer being updated, but the information they provide, in most cases, is still current.

I post this last entry in memory of my friend Lee J. Harrer who died on April 14, 2021.  Lee was a founding member of the Florida Bibliophile Society, and one of my mentors.
