Twitter Link Roundup #283 – Old Fashioned Resources for Small Business, Startups, and Design! Mike | August 21st, 2015

I don’t travel all the time, but when I do travel, I love visiting libraries – and you’d be surprised how many incredible collections are scattered across the world. And you’d be doubly surprised by the incredible buildings that house some of the great libraries of the world. Business Insider has put together what may be the definitive list of the greatest libraries in the world (with pictures!); check this out and dust off your passport and your reading glasses, because you got some traveling to do!

All those books and sooo little time! And even less time now, because it’s time for our latest set of links and articles that we shared with you over the past week on our  crowdSPRING Twitter account (as well as my own Twitter account)! We just love sharing articles about fonts, logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, economics and other interesting stuff! Enjoy!
