The ultimate purpose is to prepare students to develop a habit of finding evidence and reasoning from it, which involves being thoughtful about both the search process and sources encountered as our graduates go forth to think for themselves.
It turns out the databases we use are more likely to include content from mega-corporations that from societies or universities, and the content of over 40% of the new journals was available in only a very few libraries, so even if a database identified a citation, it wouldn’t be accessible to most library users. Many open access journals would be available – just not discoverable through library tools.
we need to make sure that we aren’t turning libraries into walled gardens of overpriced material only available to the few, that when we introduce undergraduates to search, we recognize that searching is not a matter of tool use but is a creative and critical part of the research process and so teach it in the context of learning language, finding connections, and looking for patterns
