Abstract

Information is the currency of scientific pursuit, and its immediate access is a presumed universal right to today's students. No longer must the information-seeker spend hours, days and even weeks trawling through Current Contents, as all information is now freely available at the click of a mouse. The fruitless trudge, searching for obscure journals that your library doesn't even take, and the fun to be had from sending uninitiated students on such useless errands, are both sadly gone forever. We are all part of the universal information network, and we have never had it so good.
