Source and Value

David Warlick has been taking a look at the role of libraries in learning. One thread running through his posts is on the importance of a learner determining the value of information in relation to their own goals. As I'm paying close attention to the value and formation of learning goals right now, I wanted to save a bit of Libraries: Shift 2:
"As you recall, I suggested that as information continues to change, becoming more and more critical to our endeavors and, at the same time, less finely defined by its containers (or lack there of), then its consideration becomes less based on its source and more on its value, in terms of the goals we are trying to achieve."
