From ACRLog :
There is an enjoyable post here about the increase in students using the library on college campuses. The author argues that with the abundance of information available online, many students adopt the attitude that if it isn’t online it doesn’t exist. She goes on to say it is precisely for this reason the role of the librarian is essential. I agree completely. Librarians will be necessary to teach students searching techniques, information evaluation, and effective organization of information. There is definitely still the need for reference librarians- we just need to evolve.
