Electronic Mailing Lists and Newsletters

Electronic newsletters and mailing lists are a useful source of information, providing current news to your inbox as new content becomes available.   Since the business curriculum is the most popular at my workplace, an electronic newsletter I subscribe to is Working Knowledge, distributed by the Harvard Business School.   Like many such newsletters and list services, there is a searchable archive of past issues or postings if a topic merits research.
