I am a teacher and encourage my students to go out and seek information 
themselves. Of course, if they manage to find someone who is willing to do 
ALL the work for them, that's pretty sad. People should understand that 
you're not really helping a student if you provide them with what they 
should do themselves. The right thing to do is simply point them in the 
right direction, tell them what externals they may need, where to find 
them and where they can find information that may help them to accomplish 
whatever they're doing.
