Work At Home Resources

WorldCat may be one of the most valuable and least known sites on the web. Enter a keyword, title, or author about telework, telecommuting, work from home, freelancing, or any other topic, and they’ll produce a list of the books, magazines, videos, and web resources available in libraries all over the world.


(In the interest of full disclosure, I used to be a Senior Scientist at the Online Computer Library Center aka OCLC, the company that provides WorldCat. One of the best experiences of my life. And trust me, librarians are definitely not stodgy types with thick glasses and hair in buns. The ones I knew were more like this. . . .either actor—a lot of librarians are guys, in case you hate stereotypes as much as I do.)

Anyway, now that you’ve found what you want and you’re not really interested in visiting a library in Malasia to pick up that obscure video? No problem, put in your zip code and WorldCat will list the libraries with the material you’re after starting with the closest. None nearby? Your local library can probably get it for you through Interlibrary Loan (ILL) for a small fee, even from Malasia.

Here’s a waaaaay too-long list of some heavy duty academic papers, PhD theses, popular press articles, and books on telecommuting—just to give you an idea what’s out there. It’s far, far more than you’d ever want to know; but this list is the result of just a few keystrokes. Take a gander:

    Hi Marisa!

    As a matter of fact, I searched high and low for a copy of your thesis and couldn’t find it online.

    Love to chat with you about what you wrote and what you’re doing now. We’re writing a book on the topic and would love to include your thoughts and experience.

    Drop me a note at katetom (at) encoreadventures (dot) com?

    Hi Fastfinger:

    You’re in luck. There’s a great book called The 2-Second Commute that’s all about being a virtual assistant. It’s available, along with other good advice at: http://www.2secondcommute.com/. Written by Christine Durst and Michael Haaren, it’s full of good advice from someone who practically invented the concept. Their other web site, http://www.ratracrebellion.com has lots of valuable resources as well. Also, check out Team Double Click has to offer. They’re at http://www.TeamDoubleClick.com.

    And of course, be sure to bookmark us here for continuing advice on working from home.
