I was looking for PDFs of readings for the coming semester. I had found some, but there were several that I was having problems finding.
I asked some friends if they had copies. One of them responded saying, "No but I'm very good at googling things." Shortly after, she comes back with links to most of them. Needless to say, I was really thankful.
She keeps insisting that it's a useless skill, but I've found that knowing how to look for things in databases has proven useful time and time again.
