Librarians, and their role in helping patrons sort through information, are now needed more than ever. This webinar will cover different types of misinformation you will encounter online, including entire fake websites, partisan information and clickbait. You’ll also learn how to help patrons deal with these sources, especially when perceived accuracy and objectivity can be affected by a user’s personal politics.

Why not start the new year with a toast to libraries! The WNYLRC CE Committee would like you to join us and your other colleagues from across the region for another great WNY Librarian Informingle Happy Hour at Resurgence Brewing Company!
