The Independent Scholar's Handbook

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.

I've read the first 30 pages and must say that I highly recommend it. My only criticism is that it's dated. The first edition was published in '82 and the second edition was published in '93, so it doesn't include the Internet as a resource. Yet, it's still worth reading because it contains so many good ideas and so much down-to-earth encouragement.
