Now, more than ever, there is a needed skill for identifying and fact-checking news. Librarians have rushed to fill that void creating numerous LibGuides showcasing the dangers of clickbait, the importance of research, and teaching literacy skills showing users how to identify and avoid fake news.
To that end, we’re showcasing all the amazing LibGuides you’re creating to educate your users on the importance of evaluating news resources.
Because, as Loyola Marymount University Library highlights, “Fake News can have Real World Consequences”.
