Bibliofuture writes "In a NY Times article about Amazon.com's new full-text search feature there is a quote, "Mr. Johnson wrote last week in an online forum." The online forum being mentioned was lisnews.com.
I wonder why LISnews isn't mentioned by name since it seems the other online sources were.
From the NY Times:
Troy Johnson, a reference law librarian at Creighton University in Omaha, plans to use the feature to impress his patrons. He wants to see the look on their faces when he points them to the exact pages that answer their questions. "Should look good when I tell someone, 'On Page 45 of book xyz they talk about your subject,' " Mr. Johnson wrote last week in an online forum. "Librarians should think of how they can exploit this tool."
