Something to Ponder Tonight

I myself have been guilty of some of the errors described in this article. The adulation of Google and the failure to look elsewhere. Often there is that pressure to bring the information quickly to the patron who is either on the phone or standing in front of you. So Google usually wins the day. I believe he is correct in that we should question the Googles and Wikis on the web, perhaps seeing them as starting points for research and not the giver of all knowledge.

Here's the article that I found through the Library Stuff blog:
