Big Data: The Future Is Now
by Laura Gordon-Murnane
Big Data is hot, hot, hot! Companies such as Google, IBM, Oracle, Netflix, Amazon, Facebook, and Microsoft are only a few that see Big Data not only as a gold mine of information but as a competitive necessity required to create new products; analyze, understand, and better serve the needs of customers; spot trends; look for patterns; and gain insights previously too expensive to examine. Big Data is transforming competitive opportunities in just about every industry sector including banking, insurance, manufacturing, retail, wholesale, healthcare, communications, transportation, construction, utilities, and education.

The Information Advisor's Guide to Internet Research

Edited by Robert Berkman, The Information Advisor’s Guide to Internet Research explores, evaluates, and provides critical analysis of free and fee-based information resources, web-based services, and search strategies to help you maximize your time and keep you up-to-date on the internet's role in research.

IAG

In addition to at least one feature by business specialist Berkman, each issue of The Information Advisor’s Guide to Internet Research includes an in-depth article by Ran Hock, author of The Extreme Searcher book series and well-known seminar speaker, who checks out a major web resource.

Four regular columns are rotated; two appear each issue and give readers suggestions for cool internet tools to check out (Brian Smith McCallum, M.L.S., public and academic librarian); sites to turn to for more scholarly research needs (Briana McGuckin, reference and instructional librarian); sites to go to that provide information for the common good (Susan Fingerman, retired librarian instructor, STEM); and sites that give you “big data” facts and figures on a range of topics (Jackie Shane, former reference librarian).
