There used to be a time where people would visit the library and shuffle between books in search for information. Back then, successful library vists hinged considerably on luck – if the book is available; if it can be located in the spot that corresponds to its call number; and if, once found, the book actually contained information relevant to what one might be looking for. Today, Google can tell us if a book is available at our library. Better yet, it can throw up thousands of search results to our query, thus saving us a trip to the library.
