I find that professional organizations are very useful. I'm a member of the ACM (Association for Computing Machinery - www.acm.org), and IEEE also has similar benefits. As a member you receive a monthly journal, can subscribe to newsletters, have access to free-to-member online courses, eBooks through Safari and Books24x7, access to special insterest groups, and an optional digital library. For $99 / year, it is quite a bargain. The only thing they don't seem to provide is the time that I wish I had to spend with all of these resources!
