Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers,
LINGUIST List has so many services, and so much free information available to you, that even the most seasoned LINGUIST user may not be aware of all the resources we provide. Throughout the next few weeks, we will be sharing with you our "Making the Most of LINGUIST" letter series. This series of messages will identify the main types of resources on LINGUIST, and will explain how they can best be utilized to meet your needs.
The series will mirror the typical development of a professional linguist, beginning with resources for students, then for conducting research, followed by help with professional development, institutions, conference organizers, and employers, then finishing up with special interests.
