“Libraries Are Useful for Bibliography Generators.”

In a way this is a cool positive response from a user but I am always a little chagrined when the handy-dandy bibliographic generator tools (e.g., Endnote, RefWorks, etc) are the only things remembered. Aren’t we past 20th century citation fascism now that we can actually link back to many articles in full text and at least a bib record on Amazon or a library OPAC record for monographs? MLA, APA, and crew were for a print world. Our resources should give the “ooohs” and “aaaahs” in library instruction sessions, shouldn’t they?
