Although I'm posting this before giving a real good looking-over, this looks like a great find. The Canadian Academy of Independent Scholars has made available the full 322 page text of the The Independent Scholar's Handbook written by Ronald Gross (direct link to pdf). This book discusses how to practice serious scholarship independent from an university or institution. We're not talking platitudes or self-help nonsense - there is a good deal of information on how to access research databases, receive grants and awards, collaborate and publish. Thanks to Gladys for the link.
