Adding databases to local online public catalogs dramatically increases the amount of information easily available to users. Users need more effective information handling skills to cope with these resources. The existing level of undergraduate user skills and the amount of information available in locally loaded databases create new challenges for bibliographic instruction. Locally loaded databases challenge bibliographic instruction librarians to identify and teach effective strategies for an environment that includes too much information.
