Furthermore, we will discuss the importance of the knowledge management and controlled vocabulary as the main distinction between those librarians who are successful at information retrieval and teaching it and those students that aren’t. We will discuss this under the light of some of the large search engines or web portals that are available to the librarians and the students as part of their search archives like Google; highlighting some of the facts that should be known and/or taught about these web portals before they can be used to…show more content…

The question then remains whether these librarians can efficiently and effectively teach these students the techniques that they use to gather information and allow them to exercise the same skills of knowledge management and controlled use of vocabulary and words within and outside the environment of the libraries (Gadzella and Baloglu, 2003).

There is a generalized belief among the researchers that the differences between the success of librarians and students does lie in the overall approach to the retrieval of information and the foundation, mental and personal, behind that approach. Furthermore, many researchers believe that the ability to retain the facts is also highly dependent upon the value or worth associated with them search (Gadzella and Baloglu, 2003).
