Marydee Ojala, Online Searcher magazine
Arthur Weiss, AWARE
The ubiquity of search engines and the abundance of electronic information changes librarians’ strategies for finding relevant information. We conceptualise the research process differently, both when we search the web and when we teach about library webscale discovery systems. Even Boolean logic, a mainstay of online searching, changes in this new environment. The panel will address questions such as: how have our search behaviours changed? What have we had to unlearn? What long-held beliefs are still valid? What new techniques have proved their value? What new skills and competencies do we need?
