The Disruptive Library Technology Jester has an interesting discussion: "Can Google be Out-Googled?" Libraries have something Google doesn’t–oodles of faceted metadata. Can this save us, make our resources more useful, more findable, in more ways? Do we even want to compete with Google on this front? Are we also competing with Amazon’s database and search function? It’s a good read, well worth the few minutes it will take you to complete.
