We know that the virtual world is now full of competing analysis and experts so it is more important than ever that you evaluate information and sources. The good news is that you can find help on spotting fake news and to develop your critical thinking skills.
We have updated our Facts Matter LibGuide which now includes this info graphic from IFLA, the International Federation of Library Associations, on how to spot fake news. They have produced it in response to what has been described as the global ‘infodemic’ of inaccurate or misleading communication, find out more on the IFLA website.
One of the best approaches you can take is to focus on the most reliable and relevant sources for the information you need. Sounds easy but it can be difficult to navigate your way through opinions, analysis and data. This is where our specialist resources can help. Many of our subscription services are providing regular subject specific updates on the wider impact of Covid 19.
