A couple of months ago, Fawn polled us about our use of books and databases with students as opposed to using Google, Wikipedia, and other online resources.  I thought you would be interested in the comments of my sister—see below.

Hi:

In light of a previous discussion you secondary librarians had, the past couple of days we have had accreditation visitors here accrediting BYU.  On Wed they met with interested faculty and asked questions.  One of the questions was specifically about information literacy and if there were courses in the major where students learned how to use academic search engines so they knew how to look up information beyond just using Wikipedia.   Thought you would be interested to know that, and have a good week.  S
