Have you been to a public library?
Today, not many people are going to a library to get some information or research about something that they need.
Most people would think, “Why do I need to go to the library when I can Google it instead?”
Are you also thinking this way?
It’s really convenient to Google the things that you need to know or research about. It will save you time to go through all the books and references.
“A library is an organized collection of books, other printed materials, and in some cases special materials such as manuscripts, films and other sources of information.”
So where did the Library originated?
“The earliest discovered private archives were kept at Ugarit. There is also evidence of libraries at Nippur about 1900 BC and at Nineveh about 700 BC showing a library classification system.”
For me, if we’re going to talk about convenience and fast results, yes I will Google it as well. But when it comes to valuable and original references, I will still go to a public library and take my time doing the research.
My Doctor once said, “Do not believe everything you read in the internet”. It made me think a little.
I’ve been searching online for years, especially if I need the results right away. I thought about what she said for few hours and I then realized that she was right.
Many people claimed to be a Doctor online but the fact is they just want to promote their acne product, or their slimming product or whatever.
That’s how I see it. But it really is a case to case basis. Due to all the High-Technology evolution today, some kids have never been to a public library. The idea of our younger generation having never to experience the library causes me to feel pain.
