Gary Price Guru Interview

Gary Price interviewed in Library Link. He’s been asked so much about Google and librarians, he’s got a good answer handy.

LL: How can librarians stay ahead of the perception that everything people need is two clicks away on Google?

GP: Google and other web engines are fine for certain types of searching. However, it’s not the best choice in some situations. The challenge for us is not only telling people about what Google and other web engines can offer but also showing them what’s not available. Likewise, we can demonstrate how to be a better web search engine searcher. This is valuable info for many people. Why? With the help and knowledge of a good information professional we can help to save the time of our users. This is a commodity everybody wants to have more of.
