Happy Birthday...

... to Google! Google Search turns 13 years old today - can you believe it has been around since 1998? Google, by many is thought to be one of the easiest to use and the fastest search engines out there (besides a librarian of course), and most people use Google on a daily basis. Google indexes billions of web pages, and brings results back in seconds - really quite amazing isn't it? Read more about the history of Google on Mashable

Many people do not realize all the really cool services Google provides besides their famous search engine. There is Google Earth, Google Reader, Calendar, Documents, Chat, and much more. Come see demonstrations of these tools in our seminar Google: Beyond Searching on Wednesday October 26, 6:30-8:30pm.  Cost is $5 and will be held in the library auditorium.  Call 519-271-0220 x31 or email webmaster@pcin.on.ca to register.
