At the State University of New York at Albany, we learned about information science while completing our MLS's. While none of what I learned in those particular courses had anything to do with computer science, there was much worthwhile information about legal and ethical issues involving libraries and the internet. Most libraries now have access to a variety of electronic databases, and the good ones also have reference librarians who trained to help you use them.

While a great deal of excellent information is available, some very senior professors were trained in the days when computers were something with vacuum tubes. I knew someone who wrote a thirty page seminar paper in a few days. He was told his original proposal to research science education on the internet was too broad, and narrowed it down to physics. A search engine turned up scads of hits, many of homepages of physics departments at other universities. Typing speed was not the only bottleneck here, but it was one of them.
