In this age of fake news and alternative facts, librarians are valued more than ever for their knowledge of reliable resources and trustworthy information.

Richard Bleiler, Special Collections Librarian at the University of Connecticut, recently hosted the webinar: Alternative Facts: Why Libraries and Librarians Still Matter.

Along with giving examples of alternative facts, describing the pitfalls of user-generated sites, and providing instructions for helping researchers avoid false information, Bleiler provided these key takeaways for librarians:

  1. Work with the university administration to value and promote information literacy
  2. Work with instructors and professors to educate students on using library resources
  3. Use resources such as Project Information Literacy, LibGuides and the ALA Library Instruction Roundtable
