With the emergence of the browser searchable Internet in the early 1990s, accessing the World Wide Web has become commonplace.

However, this ease of use has come at a price. The overall quality of research being submitted by our students has suffered. Many incoming undergraduates don’t make the distinction between documents located via a typical Internet search engine and full-text information generated from academic proprietary databases housed on the library’s home page.
