Pamela Martin, in her article â€œGoogle as teacherâ€ in February 2006 College and Research Libraries News contends that Google teaches its users to only look at the first page of results, to have difficulty broadening searches, and to feel stupid if they canâ€™t find information quickly. In The World is Flat, Tom Friedman contends that Google is a flattening force in that it enables more people to find information for themselves (instead of going through an intermediary like a librarian) by â€œjust Googling it.â€ I feel Google has impacted reference work by making the questions we get more difficult. Students now go to a librarian when their first pass through Google doesnâ€™t work or they need more or different information. Recently Iâ€™ve been frustrated in that when I show students really good reference books, they just treat them as if they donâ€™t exist. I have trouble understanding this. The book is here, it has really good information, you are right here, why donâ€™t you look at this book? Does Google also teach that print reference books are somehow bad or unnecessary?
