In President Coleman's speech today she said that the young tend to be the most savy users of Internet search engines.

I would say they maybe the most eager users but librarians and other experienced online searchers are the savy ones.

And this is indeed an important role for librarians, to educate students on how to use information finding tools effectively. Any innovative ideas on how we can do this in the future?

I kept thinking about this question of educating students too when Tim O'Reilly was advocating for the small pieces loosely connected model. How do we librarians, who have been so invested in the great big monolithic place of the library become part of (infiltrate? infect?) the network of loose connections?
