Radio personality Bob Edwards would like to know what happened to the librarians he used to know.

Edwards, host of "Morning Edition" on National Public Radio, said librarians seem to be more concerned these days with building modern facilities and holding fund-raisers than with providing information.

"I'm afraid that too many good librarians have become administrators or fund-raisers," he told a librarian conference last week.

Don't get him wrong, though. Edwards says librarians beat the Internet.

"Machines have their place," he said. "But give me a librarian, someone who has a better machine: a human brain."
