The second installment of our 3x3x3 series, check out three more of our favorite sources and add them to you reading list.

1. Center for the Future of Libraries

The ALA-backed initiative was launched in 2014 and its relevance is stronger today. It's more than just a website. The Center for the Future of Libraries offers an annual Symposium and Fellowships. Furthermore, its significance extends beyond libraries. Any of the identified "trends" impact many sectors, not just libraries. What we like best about the 40 trends identified is there is something for everyone. Need a research project? No shortage of ones to investigate here.

2. urbanNext

A curatorial project at its best and something we are aspiring to. This is a multi-faceted website in association with Actar Publishers. Its a hub for academics, practitioners, students, politicians, geographers, designers, artists, architects, and city planners. Create a free account to comment and engage in discussions on topics. The international scope provides an "all-in" approach to complex issues.

3. TECHNE: Journal of Technology for Architecture and Environment

We tend to be fans of any open access journal, but this one in particular aligns with many of our interests. It provides detailed information on architectural and environmental technologies and with double blind peer review so you know its good. Our recent post on smart cities unpacks the highlights from TECHNE Special Issue 01.
