I remember when we first moved here, I was
researching breeds of dogs. We drove around the county for
several weekends, visiting each library and checking that
section of the Dewey Decimal System. Yes, things have changed.

The internet completely changed how I worked as a
reference librarian. Before the internet you only had access to
your own card catalog and needed to know where special
collections existed. Then came on line catalogs for a library
system, like Westchester Library System. Then came the internet
and, while you still needed to know where and how to look, the
world was open to you. Now the problem is determining fact from

Thanks, Jane.Â I remember many years ago
when I was amazed that a woman in France could post that
she was looking for a graph of Micky Mouse
(cross-stitch? knitting?), and she had it within a few
hours.Â Before the 'net, she would have had to know who
to contact, write them a letter, wait for a reply with
the graph - two weeks? plus knowing who to write to in
the first place.Â What a change!
Another example was a lotion maker in
Oklahoma - "How can she ever make a living selling
lotion in a small town?" Joe and I asked each other.Â
The answer, of course, is that the whole country [now
world] is a single town.
