Have Your Teachers Banned Wikipedia? They Must Not Know About This. | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it
Wikipedia's most common sources of information are news outlets, books, and academic archives. So if your teacher has banned Wikipedia, just follow Wikipedia's trail of sources to get to the good stuff. Oh, and don't tell them we sent you.

Keith Curry Lance's research work on the effectiveness of professionally staffed library media centers is remarkable.  The fact that in the face of impeccable proof that professional librarians and media staff provide remarkable boosts to student learning--libraries are still being closed makes me question any bibrary closing decision maker who claims to be research driven.


If you are not familiar with his work, you should be!
