search engines have come a long way since the 1990s, but they have not reached the capabilities that would put them kin to a librarian.  What skills and knowledge to librarians possess that search engines don’t?

  • Librarians understand nuances that aren’t contained in the text of a book or web site.
  • Librarians have muti-dimensional problem solving skills.  They understand that questions could lead to more questions and answers could lead to more problems.
