Reference Search Engine for Patrons


There is a group in the NewYork area which is working on a concept for a grant to build a “search engine” which will search vetted websites.  This search engine could then be embedded into library websites, catalogs, blogs, etc. The mission of the project is to build an application which will “find credible information in the digital age”. View a short video for additional information about the idea.

They are looking for letters of support for their grant.  If you would like to learn more about Reference Extract please visit the website.  There is a sample letter there for you to follow and/or you can leave your comments about the project.
