Wall Street Journal Special Retirement Section

November 19, 2007 at 8:58 pm 3 comments

This Saturday’s Wall Street Journal featured a special retirement section entitled “Encore.”  The section is an outgrowth of WSJ’s regular retirement column.  The section’s front page article is “The Baby Boomers Guide to Social Security” which highlights social security calculators, strategies and information for the almost 78 million Baby Boomers approaching eligibility next year.  Although the majority of the section is only available to WSJ Online subscribers, the aforementioned article and an interview with Marc Freedman, author of the recent book Encore: Finding Work That Matters in the Second Half of Life, are available to all viewers. 

Given the Social Security guide cover story, what resources, reference tools, or programs are your libraries preparing for local Baby Boomers?

    I agree that libraries should be gathering resources for older adults for a seniors page on their website. However, I also think that it would be great to have a more dynamic list of resources. There are new resources, search engines, and articles of interest to older adults coming out every day. With all the information out on the internet, I think that librarians can gather this material and make it convenient for seniors. There are several ways to set up a link blog or a feed from a Del.icio.us account. These methods allow the librarian or librarians to add resources very easily and require no maintenance. Anyone can set up such a system because it is not necessary to know how to code software. I have posted about how to set up a link blog here

    Heya this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or
    if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon
    but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
