Technology has not only changed the format in which students access information, it has also changed the pedagogy of bibliographic instruction. Today, bibliographic instruction takes place in high-tech classrooms where librarians are teaching students computer skills, online search techniques, and most importantly how to determine what is appropriate for their research in a Web environment. This paper will demonstrate how library research has changed from the past to the present by reconstructing the search for sources used in the bibliography of a paper written by an undergraduate in the 1980's.
