The Cost of the Internet

I am annoyed by this question, or rather, by the fact that this library student decided to contact a geek culture blog about answering it.

Do your own damned homework. THINK about the question. Conduct a proper reference interview with the professor (which will win you points, guaranteed, because that is what every librarian MUST do before answering a complex reference question). Read a book about being an awesome librarian.

If all else fails, contact or an actual librarian with a web presence. But Boing Boing? Really? Have they not yet learned about credibility of sources?



I just came across this on BoingBoing:Β

It seems some poor library student and her classmates are tasked with researching the cost of the entire Internet??

I will never be upset about my own assignments again.Β

I acknowledge that I live and work on stolen Cowlitz, Clackamas, Atfalati, and Kalapuya land.
I give respect and reverence to those who came before me.
