Various organisations send out e-bulletins. Here are four ;-) that I find consistently useful. They are from: Human Factors International User Interface Engineering Good Experience and Mantex (which covers the following topics: Writing, Typography, eLearning, Design, Literature, Research, Free stuff, Web design and eCommerce and has very good book reviews in subject area groupings.)

Regular quality links to infoDesign resources and events (collated from the usual suspects and further afield!)
Some sections are no longer offered (which gives a bit of a bad impression - just try to ignor it :-)
Newflashes can also by sent by email.
