Print vs. Electronic
Which to teach?

Why teach both?

Some print tools strongly influence their electronic counterparts.

Chemical Abstracts - abbreviations, inverted subject headings

Science Citation Index - citations by first author only

Don't teach what you don't own.

Exception: for graduate students and upper-division undergraduates, you may want to at least mention tools which they'll find elsewhere.
