Information Fluency and Physics Curriculum

After reading the article "Astudent's guide to searching the literature using online databses" Am J. Phys. 77(12) 1112 - 1117 Dec. 2009, I contacted the first author Casey W. Miller at the University of South Florida. I was delighted to learn from Casey that the physics department at USF has "endorsed introducing this [literature seaerching]to undergraduates as a regular part of sophomore-level Modern Physics, and is providing administrative support to track its impact."
