Goggle used to be
a narrow wooden drawer
of three by five cards
that would send you to the stacks
to find the knowledge you sought
*Note: I sometimes laugh when I hear a student say, “It took forever to find the information!” Pre 1990 it took weeks to find pertinent information at the library. Find your main book then beginning all the cross referencing to find the information you needed (accumulating a pile of books and articles) to write a report or term paper. Now the library is at your fingertips in your pocket, all the information you need with a few key strokes and arrow clicks. Yes, it still takes times, however not physically running back and forth.
Search engine history all started in 1990 with Archie, an FTP site hosting an index of downloadable directory listings. Search engines continued to be primitive directory listings, until search engines developed to crawling and indexing websites, eventually creating algorithms to optimize relevancy.
