Google versus the Library

In the August 15th issue of Forbes, Stephen Manes discusses the resources that libraries offer which Google cannot match. He touches on examples of several resources, include fulltext materials that are usually exclusive to library users.

Just viewing this article can show a user why libraries can be superior to the Internet in locating resources. Forbes.com has made the article available, but a person must register first to see it. The Kelvin Smith Library has THREE methods to access this article for free for faculty and students, which becomes obvious when you search the A-Z Electronic Journal List. For example, a member of the Case community on the campus network or using the VPN access can view the fulltext of the article through EBSCO Academic Search Premier.
