At the Ref Desk (4/15/18): File under 'Learn Something New Everyday': Wanna print more than one page (say, 2, 4, 9, etc.) on the same side of the paper?

I was reminded of that quote when reading "Disconnects Between Library Culture and Millennial Generation Values" by Robert H. McDonald and Chuck Thomas" (Educause Quarterly, 23:4). The authors harshly criticize research libraries for not meeting the needs of their users due in part to a rigid adherence to "old values". This in turn leads to "fundamental disconnects" between libraries and their users in the areas of "technology, policy, and unexploited opportunities".
