Don't make it easy for them

An interesting post for academic librarians on the ACRL blog (with thoughtful comments on it too): Don't make it easy for them. Andy Burkhardt addresses the perennial talking point of when you stop actually doing the work for the student and start telling/teaching them how to do it for themselves http://acrlog.org/2011/01/04/dont-make-it-easy-for-them/
