AL Live: "Going Beyond Google"

The value of libraries and librarians
"It's a question librarians are asked constantly: Why do people need us when they have Google and other public search tools? In this month's episode of AL Live, "Going Beyond Google", we'll talk about our value as experts, what it means and how we can effectively convey it to the public."

The panel:
  • Joanna Burkhardt, Professor and Head Librarian at the University of Rhode Island (URI) Branch Libraries in Providence and Narragansett
  • Nikki Krysak, Head of Instructional Services, Norwich University in Vermont
  • John McCullough, Product Manager, Discovery, OCLC
  • Beth McDonough, Research and Instruction Librarian, Western Carolina University
