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.
