Students need Librarians, not just Google

Read Forbes writer Mark Moran's recent article:
In the libraries of old, the Dewey Decimal System got you started on research. But there is no card catalog 2.0.
Today, librarians are the card catalog 2.0. We are the ones who teach users database searching and how to sift through the overwhelming options to find relevant material which helps to defend an argument in an assignment. We bring order to chaos which is sometimes comforting and always valuable.
