Internet Searches:Librarians Do It Better

According to a recent study, patients looking for medical information are more likely to find what they're looking for with the help of a librarian, rather than searching for themselves. "This demonstrates...that even though the information is supposedly so accessible and everything is on the web, people still need the help of a professional to find information that is relevant to them that is current and accurate and authoritative."

Internet Searches:Librarians Do It Better reports the results of the study, conducted at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center.
