Wikipedia, Bemoaning

A librarian should never give a presentation without making an uncomfortable reference to patrons' use of Wikipedia. It helps if you claim to do this from atop your soapbox.

You see, there's the difference between English librarians and their American cousins. Any self-respecting English librarian would never have heard of Wikipedia in the first place.

really, Australian Librarians are right there with their American cousins, bemoaning wikipedia and its lack of authority. They are conflicted though, because they do love this hip web 2.0 stuff and they find it hard to knock any social web thing, so you'll find them trying to both endorse and decry it at the same time - it is fun to watch ;)
