"Idiot Links"

I thoroughly detest what I call "Idiot Links".

I just want to be given proper citations - I can then locate the articles in the journals myself.

I have always thought it was very bad practice for the MUN instructors of our library courses to provide "Idiot Links" to suggested readings. 

It's a poor library student who can't locate an article from a citation ! 

Moreover, I am shocked when some library students have difficulty finding such articles due to problems with some of the links provided by our instructors.
