Google academy

First Google gave us an index to the whole web that worked. Now the company is breaking this vast field into useful subsets of information. There was Google News, for current news stories and now Google Scholar (beta). This limits search results to books, articles and citations (where the source is not available online).

A Google Scholar search for ‘Grunig public relations’ produces this list of sources and citations to the work of James and Larissa Grunig from the public relations academic field.

It’s not quite a library (yet), but once again Google has found a way to make the web more useful. The quotation ‘stand on the shoulders of giants’ is adapted from Isaac Newton. Read more on SearchEngineWatch.
