As previously discussed on this blog, we love references to old technology, old terminology, and old librarianship topics. I was flipping through the old CCLA Bulletins, and found this delightful piece on online searching.
This was written almost exactly 24 years ago, and obviously in that time online searching has become the first (and for many people, last) stop in their research. I don’t think I’d have to work this hard to convince many people nowadays to try searching online! I found the tidbit about Quicklaw having “peak hours” for researching to be particularly interesting – that is certainly from before my time as a law librarian (and those prices – ouch!).
