How to “Get More from the Web than Google Will Tell You”


via librarian.net, talking about this article “Get More from the Web than Google Will Tell You.”

An interesting article from CIO Magazine’s website which talks about tips to the business/market research crowd. I have to agree with Jessamyn West that the writer, Margaret Locher M.L.S., does a great job representing libraries and librarians in the age where everyone “googles” everything. The six tips are very good to keep in mind. I’ve been using tip 1 and 2 when I teach my library workshops to college students. Even when the teacher bans the “use” of Wikipedia as a source, it shouldn’t stop the student from using Wikipedia as gateway to other reliable sources.
