Thank God For Public Libraries And Librarian Gods

Google, Shmoogle. Reference Librarians Are Busier Than Ever

Even in the internet age, reference librarians still dig up answers that require extra effort, searching old books, microfilm and paper files, looking for everything from owners of long-defunct firms to 19th-century weather reports.

Though online searches are now at the fingertips of most people, many still prefer to call or visit a library. Some can’t or don’t use computers; others recognize librarians have search skills and access to databases that search engines can’t match.

Boldfaced emphasis added be me.
