Description:

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.
