  10. 13. Information Overload: Student perspective …” we’ve kind of been tossed into this and we’ve just learned through experience we have to go on a Web site and just raid it for information. So I would say that despite all that’s out there, it certainly is harder to find the right source and evaluate whether it’s good, or not, because there’s so much – you only have a little bit of time to spend on each source you find. -Engineering student in a follow-up interview Project Information Literacy From Eisenberg, Michael B. and Alison J. Head. “How College Students Evaluate and Use Information in the Digital Age.” Project Information Literacy. University of Washington Information School, November 1, 2010. Web. 11 November 2010.
  11. 14. Information Overload? <ul><li>Information overload is real and, by ignoring it, our students are limiting themselves to finding the easiest rather than finding the best. A highly information-literate person has no fear of diving into the information fog and will find the best rather than the most convenient . If education is starting to take us there, let's join the movement and put information literacy into the very foundation of all learning. </li></ul>Badke, William. “Information Overload, Maybe Not.” Online Sep/Oct 2010: 52-54.
