“I'm not a Reference Librarian, but I Play One on the Web”
A quotation from the author Neil Gaiman that is popular among reference librarians is that “Google can bring you back, you know, a hundred thousand answers. A librarian can bring you back the right one.” The sense of the saying is that finding information sources might not require expertise anymore, but separating the wheat from the chaff can sometimes be beyond Google’s capabilities.

In October’s tech program we’ll look at ways to improve your web searches. This will include technical tips for crafting search engine searches as well as tips for evaluating the various pages that a search engine returns.

Free. Registration preferred. You may bring your personal phone, tablet, or laptop.
