After the intense, team project I was working on this weekend was finished, I heard a lot of griping from people about how difficult it was for many of the teams to locate a specific piece of information via Google. My team had at least two librarians on it. No one asked me for help trying to find that bit of data. I’m not sure whether anyone asked the other librarian. Granted, it’s not like I was advertising that I am a librarian. For the most part, people’s professions don’t matter much, so we don’t discuss work. I had no idea people were having problems trying to locate the data. I was rather surprised that people spent so much effort combing through Google without results instead of trying other methods. I have not yet tried to search for the data to find out if the path I have in my mind might work, but I would not have begun with Google.
