Study of Law Students' Online Research Habits
The study found that "in 2002, 75% of the first year class stated that they performed at least 80% of their research online; in 2003, this percentage grew to 83%; and by 2004, the number had increased to 93%."
Wow - I knew the online preference was high, but I didn't realize that it was that high! I have to admit, I prefer online sources also - BUT - I know that sometimes the better source exists in print. It's unfortunate that this realization seems to be escaping students. Just wait until they see their first Lexis / Westlaw bill.
