Search, Health Information, and Librarians (Presentation Slides)

Slides from this morning’s keynote at CHLA 2007 by Greg Notess (of Search Engine Showdown) are embedded at the bottom of this post.

From the conference blog:

Greg’s talk will examine the rise of Web 2.0. Communication and community are again being promoted on the Web. New search tools, unique databases, and novel approaches appear and add the ability for viewers to comment, discuss, and rate information. With greater ability for data interchange, new sites can wrap old information in new designs.

The new tools offer certain advantages for the health librarian, but by no means do they replace all the old tools. This presentation gives an overview of new tools with particular attention to their scope, accuracy, overlap, and unique features. Explore new communication options for communicating with users and leveraging the best of Web 2.0.
