Librarians as reliable search tools

I have had three people email me this article today from CNet news: Most reliable search tool could be your librarian. As we constantly struggle between teaching students what they need and giving them what they want, I liked this quote within the article:
"For some people, if the answer isn't in the first few results it might as well not be there," said Gary Price, founder and editor of the ResourceShelf blog and director of online resources at "No matter how smart and helpful search engines get, they're never going to replace librarians." - Elinor Mills, CNet, 9/29/06
