I like to think that my readers are library users. They checkout books, magazines, music CDs, audio books or DVDs of movies or tv shows. They might access their public library’s catalog from the comfort of their home and request materials for pick up.
I really like to think they access the databases, have heard of the deep web and know that their most reliable search tool could be their librarian:
In addition, search engines also are only offering up a fraction of all the information out there. There is still the relatively untapped so-called “deep Web” of information behind corporate firewalls and password-protected Web sites. To get to the information, people have to know where the sites are and often have to pay to subscribe.
That pay to subscribe part is where your library picks up the tab so use it!
