Challenges in the Webbed Information Skeins

I was cruis­ing the librar­i­an blogs this after­noon and came across Pam Berger’s essay on the skills that we need to learn in order to make good use of the infor­ma­tion resources on the web.

In par­tic­u­lar her thought that “Hypermedia envi­ron­ment encour­age broad accu­mu­la­tion of infor­ma­tion, but not nec­es­sar­i­ly deep explo­ration.” struck a chord. 

I’m look­ing for­ward to see­ing what tools and tech­niques her read­ers have found use­ful to encour­age deep read­ing and consideration.
