Talk of so-called fake news, what it is and what it isn’t, is front and center across the media landscape, with new calls for the public to acquire appropriate research and evaluation skills and become more information savvy. But none of this is new for librarians and information professionals, particularly for those who teach information literacy. Cooke, a Library Journal Mover & Shaker, believes that the current situation represents a golden opportunity for librarians to impart these important skills to patrons, regardless of their age or experience. In this Special Report, she demonstrates how. Readers will

  • learn more about the rise of fake news, particularly those information behaviors that have perpetuated its spread;
  • discover techniques to identify fake news, especially online; and
  • explore methods to help library patrons of all ages think critically about information, teaching them ways to separate fact from fiction.

Information literacy is a key skill for all news consumers, and this Special Report shows how librarians can make a difference by helping patrons identify misinformation.
