The Most Reliable Search Tool

CNET recently published an article titled "Most reliable search tool could be your librarian". Although doing your research on Google may be quicker, it is very often not nearly as reliable. The author, Elinor Mills, uses a great example of this, by discussing how the first result of a Google search of Martin Luther King was a web site written by white supremacists. The article goes on to talk about many more reasons why a librarian is better than a search engine for doing research.

So come by and visit us; we are always happy to help.
