Jun: Going Beyond Google (ALA)

June 12, 2pm EST

It’s a question librarians are asked constantly: Why do people need us when they have Google and other public search tools? In “Going Beyond Google” on Thursday, June 12, 2:00 p.m. (Eastern), we’ll talk about our value as experts, what it means and how we can effectively convey it to the public.

The panel of experts for this American Libraries Live broadcast includes:

• Joanna Burkhardt, Professor and Head Librarian at the University of Rhode Island (URI) Branch Libraries in Providence and Narragansett
• Nikki Krysak, Head of Instructional Services, Norwich University in Vermont
• John McCullough, Project Manager, OCLC
• Beth McDonough, Research and Instruction Librarian, Western Carolina University

You can pre-register at (pre-registration assures you a reminder before the event), or go to on June 12 at 2:00 p.m. (Eastern) to view.

This broadcast is sponsored by OCLC, Connecting people to knowledge through library cooperation.
