Internet: Student Lifesaver or Drowning Pool?

The North Adams (MA) Transcript has an article on current thinking by college students, their professors and college librarians regarding library and internet use. Reporter Ryan Quinn speaks with students attending elite Williams College (in Williamstown) and the Mass. College of Liberal Arts (in North Adams).

Interviewees discuss such issues as physical distance from the library, tutorials on researching, research tools, credibility of sources, primary sources, filtering, plagarism, and (of course) the value of librarians.
