Information Illiterate or Lazy: How College Students Use the Web for Research.
Thompson, Christen
portal: Libraries and the Academy, v3 n2 p259-68 Apr 2003
Reviews studies of student usage of the Internet to determine how they use the Web for research. Preliminary data suggest the majority of students begin a research assignment with the Internet, most often with a commercial search engine. Undetermined is whether students have adequate information literacy skills to find authoritative information and evaluate it for use in research. Evidence indicates room for improvement, including how library instruction is designed. (Author/AEF)
