Abstract (Document Summary)

Information professionals are devoted to finding quality information. No one doubts that. People high-mindedly point to peer review, value-added indexing, and sophisticated search strategies as guarantors of quality. Sometimes that's the correct approach.

Researchers are finding blog posts, discussion group entries, videos, microblog comments, links from Tweets, shared resource sites, Wikipedia articles, podcasts, and preprints on scholarly topics.

It's listening to different voices, gaining new evaluation skills, and paying attention to new quality measures.
