A List Without Libraries

The Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies' list of Top 100 Tools for Learning - culled from top-10 charts created by e-learning experts - names a wide array of tech tools that professors have come to love. Among the items that made the cut are Web browsers, e-mail clients, RSS feeders, blogging programs, and, of course, Microsoft*s evergreen PowerPoint presentation software.

But online library resources, which would seem like a good fit for e-learners, are notably absent from the master list. What gives?

"It's not as if the responding experts ignored information-retrieval tools," writes Steven Bell at ACRLog. "Both Google and Google Scholar are on the top-100 list. And it's not as if these experts wouldn*t know something about library databases."
