Dear Readers,

I subscribe to a LOT of industry newsletters – those related to SAS users' interests and those that will educate and inform me on the things going on in the journalism and social media worlds. I love the information, but sometimes I miss an opportunity to read an article or attend a web cast because I'm busy with other things.

I wondered if you might have the same trouble juggling work and family responsibilities with your desire to learn more about the software you are using and how others are using it. Many of the great web casts, papers and newsletters can be viewed in their archive listing or as on demand.

For instance, I know that many of you love the SAS Talks series. You can go back and listen to all of the September web casts as on demand events. You can also sign up for an RSS feed of all SAS Samples and Notes so that you never miss one. And finally, our newsletters have an archive where you can find current newsletter editions and those that go back nearly three years!

Now, sit back and enjoy, or bookmark your favorites for later.
