Information Literacy: News

May 12 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

The truth is out there. Or is it? Join Kira Smith to hone your skills on evaluating sources and checking for authority and authenticity.

The truth is out there. Or is it? When you are helping library users either in person or online, you want to send users the best and most reliable information but a quick interaction doesn’t give you a lot of time to evaluate sources and check for authority and authenticity.

This interactive and informative webinar will help hone your skills on:

  • verifying and refuting information
  • identifying bias in news sources
  • reviewing peer review
  • identifying fake social media posts, images and videos
