  5. 5. In the online world the process is reversed. People actively seek the resources or businesses they are looking for just as they would inside a library information system
  6. 6. This is why identifying the right info to put on your “index card” is so vitally important
  7. 7. Hey Robin, but I see people can easily find me if they want to. What’s the use of this?
