Documents in Information Science is a free bibliography of over 5000 articles and papers on LIS and related topics, 2109 of which can be downloaded from their site. Although the title of each article or paper is given in the language in which it was written, abstracts are available in Spanish only.

Navigating the site is a bit difficult, but there is a lot of quality information here.

AskUsQuestions.com

I found a site so cool, I added a new topic. If you\'re
in NE Ohio you already know about this cool site. AskUsQuestions.com
is an on-line library with a twist, it allows online chats
with librarians from local libraries.
This is such a damn cool idea. Not just because it allows
librarians to work from home, but because of the level of
service delivered to customers. Are more libraries doing
this?
\"AskUsQuestions.com is a service developed by 15 public
libraries and the NOLA Regional Library System.  Through the
service patrons from participating libraries can talk with
live experienced reference librarians on the Internet from
8:00 PM until 12:00 PM (EST) Sunday - Thursday.\"And a
cool domain name to boot!
