Co-producer of the Research Focus "Source Expertise - What It Means in a Google World", Lynn Strand, highlights articles and reviews exploring what sets information professionals apart from Google.
The Jinfo Research Focus, "Source Expertise - What It Means in a Google World", is bringing together search experts to share their tools, experience and products that they use in our increasingly "Google-ified" world.
