Web Facts Erode Research

A recent article in the Times was interesting. "Web facts erode research: The Google generation represents a fundamental threat to university education as we know it. Discuss" talks about how google searches erode academic learning methods.

"Libraries may form part of the cure - and the cause - academics say. One expert says that library staff can help students to reverse what they've learnt through social-networking sites and Google. But another says that students may be using Google largely because of library underfunding."
