I hope you’ll check them out! Three of them are Spanish language sites. My personal favorite is SmartHistory.   In other news, in keeping with our role as media mentors, the Great Website Committee is pleased that ALSC has decided to expand the scope of our focus to include apps.  Details are still being worked out, however, you can be sure that we are continuously moving forward!
