I have a friend who teaches English courses at the college level and this is her biggest complaint. She says that the students simply do not know how to research. They don't know how to use databases or how to evaluate websites which seems so crazy to me. I'm not sure why these skills aren't being taught or integrated into every content area. Perhaps too much time is being spent preparing students for standardized testing.

School Libraries and librarians have a significant roll to play. Many of us realise the importance to stocking non-curriculum based stock as we want students in our libraries.
