Answer

We're familiar with the image of an iceberg.  Only 10% is visible and the rest is out-of-sight.

If the web were an iceberg, Google searches the visible web and library resource are out-of-sight.

Plus, Google may find unreliable sources.  Library resources including GALILEO are more likely to be reliable, credible, high quality & authoritative.
