Semantic search engine hakia is calling for librarians to contribute credible web sources. They've done this in the past in the health industry. One of the reasons behind the request is that popular websites aren't always credible and vice versa.

It's also clearly a strategic alternative to Google, which bases rankings largely on popularity via links.

"By having information experts suggest sites to hakia, we can guide searchers to relevant and credible information on the Web. As a search engine, we will rely on information professionals' collective knowledge to add a dimension to search: credibility," said Melek Pulatkonak, President and Chief Operating Officer of hakia, at the Web Search University event in Washington DC.

"The campaign that hakia is starting is a great way to leverage the never-ending knowledge and information analysis skills of the information professional in building a Web database full of the web resources that are most useful, and most importantly, have the most credibility," said Gary Price, Editor, ResourceShelf.com. "This is a new chapter for library collection development. I hope this is only the beginning."
