Discover the benefitsa€”and drawbacksa€”of GoogleAr GoogleAr has become a nearly omnipresent tool of the Internet, with its potential only now beginning to be realized. How can librarians effectively integrate this powerful search engine to provide service to their patrons? Libraries and GoogleAr presents leading authorities discussing the many possibilities of using GoogleAr products as effective, user-friendly tools in libraries. Google Scholar and Print are extensively explored with an eye toward offering an expanded view of what is and may be possible for the future, with practical insights on how to make the most of the producta€™s capabilities. It seems certain that GoogleAr is here to stay. Libraries and GoogleAr comprehensively examines this a€œdisruptive technologya€ that is seen as both a threat and an opportunity by both librarians and publishers. Both perspectives are explored in depth, along with practical applications of this and other GoogleAr technology that may be new to librarians. GoogleAr products and other more familiar research tools are compared for effectiveness and ease of use. The various unique needs of users and scholars are detailed and considered as a springboard for insightful discussion of the future role of librarians in todaya€™s world. Potential problems are closely examined, such as copyright issues of digitization, and privacy concerns sparked by its collection of personal information about its users.
