This is a very nice paper from 1993 that I found while looking up something else. It just goes to show that the ideas we have been talking about here have been brewing for a long time. Like this, for example: "Network-based information is not a static, fixed 'thing' but rather is dynamic, fluid, and changing." And this: "As networks and information technologies become more wide-spread and integrated into the world of work, the goals of education are shifting from knowing a fixed body of knowledge to knowing how to think independently and how to find information when needed." Here's a more detailed article from the same authors.
