Google Isn't Everything


In the August 15 issue of Forbes magazine, Stephen Manes lets readers know that they have an alternative to Googling--using databases made available through your local public library. If you have a subscription you can read the article here, or read a summary from the NetGold listserv.


Google isn't everything, but it a very important research tool. Even so, it should never be exclusively used without looking at other authoritative sources such as books.

Actually, you don't need a "subscription," just a free login (it is one of those websites that wants you to register for free like the New York Times). I recommend Bugmenot to avoid disclosing personal info.
