MSN announced its new Search yesterday, and now the question in Forbes is "which search engine is best?" http://www.forbes.com/technology/2005/02/02/cx_js_0202polldujour.html . I think it may be time for librarians to start writing those letters (to editors, to bosses, open letters to patrons, etc.) in an effort to educate folks on how to evaluate search engines and search results. We already include tips on using search engines in our general library classes at my library. Let me know how you introduce your library or Internet use classes to these concepts, please.
