Since Google issued their IPO in 2004, it seems like all we hear when we talk about the internet is search: search will drive eyeballs, search will create revenue, search will save academia, search will exponentially enhance the research process, and search will make libraries and librarians irrelevant. This panel will take the position that SEARCH is only a stepping stone to the real potential offered by the internet … FIND. Each of the panelists will discuss how their organizations are adding value by ensuring that information seekers are doing more FINDING and less SEARCHING. How does more FINDING translate to USE and even to new scholarship?

Note: Overflow seating is available for all plenary sessions in the Francis Marion Colonial and Gold Ballrooms.
