Study Shows Internet Access Inflates Your Sense of Internal Knowledge

“If you don’t know something, you Google it. Of course you do. But researchers suggest that the digital fast track to knowledge can inflate our sense of how much information is actually stored away in our brain.

Researchers from Yale have carried out experiments to investigate how Internet searching changes the way people rate their own internal knowledge. Using over 1,000 student participants, the team carried out a series of nine different tests that compared participants who used the Internet for knowledge acquisition to those using other means. The results appear to suggest that the use of the Internet boosts perception of knowledge, even when it’s about something unrelated to previous online exploration.”

Special Discounts with the attached PDF flyer for:
 Information Services Today: An Introduction
As a collection of 39 chapters addressing 7 key areas within the LIS field, I truly believe the success of this book lies within its historical context of the field, its current relevance to today’s complex LIS environment, its identification of essential and emerging issues, and its wealth of resources, tips, and strategies that will guide LIS students and professionals in their academic and professional pursuits. Promotion of the book has already begun and includes a combination of brochures and flyers, advertisements, and press releases across various platforms.
In addition to the book’s release, we will also be finishing the book’s adjoining 6-part webinar series this week. This webinar series, produced by Library Journal and offered in conjunction with the book, highlights the book’s key themes and objectives and offers thought-provoking insight and strategies for success within the LIS field. The book, the webinar series, and the wealth of resources offered through the online supplements provide readers a multimedia experience that will enhance both individual and classroom learning experiences.
Below  is the cover image of the book. The book is available in hardback, paperback and as an e-book. The book is available directly from Rowman  & Littlefield at: https://rowman.com/ISBN/9781442239579
