For those questions Google can’t answer…

There are some questions that cannot be answered by Google

Taken off Amber Mac’s flickr feed (of the CommandN fame), this little photo ought to tickle the brainy nibblets of librarians and teachers in higher ed. Being in a pretty large university, I’ve always heard complaints about how undergrads can’t seem to write papers with good references, often relying on whatever their Google search hauls in on the first few hits.

Has advances in search technology inadvertently crippled our youth’s information literacy?

P.S.: If Google can’t answer, maybe Wikipedia can… just kidding!
