I've known more than a few college professors and school teachers in my life. They tend not to accept change very well. When you teach something for thirty years and it is discovered that there was really no evidence to show what you were teaching was real, you tend to deny it. So many things they used to teach have been changed. We invented better equipment to monitor or test things and found something different.

You need to know how to understand the research coming out and how to apply it. It takes a real lot of research, not just a few articles.

Having access to a library....may make you a scholar

Depends whats allowed to make it into the library in the first place, no?

Ever hear of Bradburys Fahrenheit 451?
They started burning books in the novel...

some quote from Fahrenheit 451

“A book is a loaded gun in the house next door…Who knows who might be the target of the well-read man?”

“We need not to be let alone. We need to be really bothered once in a while. How long is it since you were really bothered? About something important, about something real?”

“With school turning out more runners, jumpers, racers, tinkerers, grabbers, snatchers, fliers, and swimmers instead of examiners, critics, knowers, and imaginative creators, the word ‘intellectual,’ of course, became the swear word it deserved to be.”

No one is going to the archives anymore. Library is becoming a joke full of children books. Even College libraries are garbage. Constantly rewriting books and history. Too much unnecessary information.
Everyone is forced to go online to search for articles for school work. This is dumb.
