The Internet vs. The Library
Typical Library has less than 10,000 books
Books are edited and carefully selected for library shelves
Library is well organized using a standard system
Resources and material in a library change and update slowly
Internet has over 150 million web sites.
Anyone can create an web site and publish it.
Internet is an “Information Dump” with little to no organization
Thousands of new words and pictures are put on the internet everyday
