When I was in my elementary and high school years, I and my parents had a hard time looking for my school textbooks in the bookstore. Why? Because most of the time our list is not complete because of misspelled book title or authors name.
Today's generation is different. Finding textbooks have become easy. If you go to a bookstore, you can simply ask the saleslady for some assistance. They have a program that can check if they have an inventory of that book by author, title or ISBN textbook lookup. After encoding some data, the saleslady can say immediate if it's available or not and if it is available, in what shelf it is located. You save time and effort.
Anyway, the advent of technology really hastens things up. But the problem is some of the new generation doesn't know how to handle things the old school way when technology breakdowns. They don't know how to survive without the help of technology.
