These individuals, from my perspective, are not worthy listening at because they are not up-to-date with information in their fields of interest. This attitude might have been useful 5 or 10 years ago, when there were less than 1 percent of what we have available today. But I cannot think we can continue this way. Look at what British Library or any other big library posts online. The French Gallica is another good example.
