Online Searching puts aspiring librarians working in all types of institutions on the fast track to becoming expert searchers, the intermediaries who unite information users with trusted sources that satisfy their information needs.

Karen Markey is a professor emerita in the School of Information at the University of Michigan. Her experience with online searching began with the earliest commercial systems, Dialog, Orbit, and BRS; the first end-user systems, CD-ROMs and online catalogs; and now centers on today's web search engines and proprietary search systems for accessing surrogate and source databases of full texts, media, and numeric and spatial data. Since joining the faculty at Michigan in 1987, she has taught online searching to thousands of students in her school's library and information science program. Cheryl Knott is a professor in the School of Information at the University of Arizona. Her experience with online searching began in 1988, when she became a reference librarian at the University of Texas and access to online databases involved dialing in via an external modem. For two decades she has taught online searching in undergraduate courses designed for end users and graduate courses designed for master's students in library and information science programs. Her book, Find the Information You Need! Resources and Techniques for Making Decisions, Solving Problems, and Answering Questions (Rowman & Littlefield, 2016), is designed for undergraduates.
