While students in the 1970s and 1980s had to lug all
their books to the library to study and take notes on paper, students today can simply log on to
their school’s electronic library anywhere they have an Internet connection and record notes
to their computer. College students today sling iPads and Kindles as commonly as textbooks,
they Facebook as much as they study and they hardly have a day away from their smartphones.
Advancing technology has shaped so many facets of society – the college world is no exception.
