Our team’s analogy for Google vs. PsycInfo is convenient fast-food against healthy raw ingredients. Going to 7/11 or McDonalds for something to eat is easy and satisfying, just like Google, but a lot of it is junk. Using PsycInfo is like shopping at an organic grocery store; it will take some time and effort to construct your dish, but in the end, you will have a better result.
Google is like fast-food or pre-made food that come in packages that are tailored for general publics. It highlights most people’s interests and contains some unrelated information. PsycInfo on the other hand let researchers pick out necessary information according to individual’s own way of thinking and arrangements.

What a wonderful way of differentiating Google & PsycInfo. The drawing is very clear and good too.
