Nice article from Chris Sherman over at SearchEngineWatch that points to the fact that a lot of useful information can still be found by using resources other than the web - that is to say forum postings, bulletin boards and USENET groups. (Does anyone still use USENET these days, or is it only people who have been around for a decade or so?). I agree with everything he says, and I still make a point of mentioning them in my training courses. One useful tool that he didn't mention though is JISCmail which is a mailing list for UK academics and I've often found that a helpful resource when trying to track something down.
