Excerpt from “The Information-Seeking Behavior of Clinical Staff in a Large Health Care Organization” by Philip Hider, et al published in Journal of the Medical Library Association – Volume 97, Issue 1 (January 2009)

NOT the way to Teach Millenials (or any other age group)

(Sound effect: 20-somethings critique, a la Office)
