Google and its Impact on Our Lives – Resources Available in the Circulating Collection

Google’s overall mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful (https://www.google.com/intl/en/about/). Google has seen success regarding ease of use and access to different apps, for example, it is the world’s most heavily utilized search engine (https://searchenginewatch.com/2016/08/08/what-are-the-top-10-most-popular-search-engines/), Gmail is a widely popular personal e-mail service, Google Scholar and Books provide access to research, and Google Sites offers free webspace for personal websites. However, as Google technology continues to transform our lives, it is important to take a step back and learn more about Google, its history, impact on society, and its apps.
