Information finding

Updated the Just In blog which does an occasional brief review of selected highlights from the professional press. Haven't done this for a while which gave me the opportunity to spot a number of articles from different journals published over the last few months all on a similar theme: how people go about finding information. The oversimplified version appears to be...

Students use Google and course texts first then the library.
Academics use Google and journals first then talk to their colleagues.

Comments on this would be wonderful!
