Blake writes "This One Says students may have the whole World Wide Web at their fingertips nowadays, but that's no replacement for a good library, said Melrose High School librarian Dani Simon.
"The Web has its pros and cons," Simon said. "The pro is there is a whole lot of good information out there. The major con is it's very hard to tell the good information from the bad information, and that takes training."
A library book has been chosen twice, Simon said, first by the publisher, which gives it some degree of validity, and then by the librarian who chooses it for the school's collection. It can also be difficult to spot bias in a Web site."
