The prof who runs the library at Baruch always comes around giving demonstrations of how to use the databases that we involuntarily pay for via tuition. She always goes on and on about how much better these databases are than “useless search engines like Google” but what I’ve come to find is that Google > Databases. Much >. I find all of the same information, but faster, with less filtering and without having to skim dozens of useless articles to find what I want. There’s a reason Google is the Master of the Universe.
PS: Wikipedia too. All the profs say never to use Wiki, but Wiki is a great starting point. It gives you everything you need to know, and then you go to Google (where else?) and find “more reputable” sources that say the exact same thing. Gotta love how it works like that 😉
