Summary
"Going beyond the fake news problem, this book tackles the broader issue of teaching library users of all types how to become more critical consumers and sharers of information. As a public, school, or academic librarian or educator, you can help library users to become more conscious and responsible consumers of information. As you read, you'll gain a better understanding and appreciation of the core concepts involved in promoting critical information literacy, such as information ethics, media literacy, and civic education. You'll also learn the history of fake news and come away with practical ideas in mind for strategies to apply in your library. Chapters contributed by leading experts in public, academic, and school library services are written in plain, everyday language that librarians and library school students can easily understand and relate to their own experiences as information users, especially their experiences in social media and other online venues where sharing false information takes only a click. Features: Offers a means to learn how to step into their vital role as leaders helping their communities to more critically evaluate information; Features ways to master the concept of critical information literacy, information ethics related to online information sharing, and other core concepts related to information literacy, fake news, and teaching users about source evaluation; Encourages readers to view libraries as the ideal institutions for combating the fake news problem" -- From the publisher
