ALA’s Webcast About Fake News Is November 1

The American Library Association (ALA) is offering a Webcast about fake news on November 1. “In our role as gatekeepers of information, librarians have always been responsible for establishing the authority of information. But with social media ensuring that news articles—whether real or not—spread like wildfire, how can help our users filter the real from the fake? How can we maintain our professional obligation to ensure equal access to information in a politically charged time where it seems like not all information is created equal? In our next episode of American Libraries Live, you’ll have a chance to discuss these questions with our expert panel. We’ll discuss this and how we can move forward as a profession.”
