Does Library instruction matter to students?

Lauren Pressley in Lauren's Library Blog put her finger on a central point that I have often thought about.

Are your classes showing :

"Information literacy as how to do library research, information literacy as how to navigate the larger information environment, or information literacy as both?"

She then did a little survey : here are the results from those who replied :

13% Information literacy as doing library research
27% Information literacy as navigating the larger information environment
60% Information literacy as a combination of both

Wonder what you think?

It would be great to get some feedback? Is anyone alive out there? Who's still telling them about the library? Who's trying to make them into librarians?
